Chelsea star Eden Hazard said he improved after just seven days working with the Blue’s coach Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.
The Belgian put in two years under the administration of former manager Jose Mourinho, winning the Premier League, Europa League, and EFL Cup before the Portuguese was replaced by former Juventus coach last season.
In his initial season in charge of the West London club, Conte guided Chelsea to Premier League grandness – led by the in-form Eden Hazard.
The Belgium international heaped praise on Conte, saying: “Even after a week I think I had progressed with him.
“But I think he’s shown not just at Chelsea but also at Juve that he’s a good coach and I think he has some good years ahead of him.”
Hazard who is set to make his first start of the season against Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup on Wednesday following a niggling injury intruded on pre-season, included:
“There’s a lot of tactics. It’s not generally nice as a forward as you need to run, defend and everything, except in any event at the weekend, you know precisely what to do, you can even close your eyes and play. That’s good.
