Hazard backtracks on Zidane claim?

Eden Hazard appears to have backtracked on his admiration of Zinedine Zidane as he “doesn’t know” if the Real Madrid boss is among the world’s best Coaches.

Hazard admitted a little over the week ago that he “would love” to play under Zidane one day, thus fuelling links with Madrid, but the Chelsea attacker was less enthusiastic about the Frenchman’s managerial abilities a second time.

“Of course Zidane was my idol as a kid,” he told Le Parisien.

“I want to work with the best Coaches in the world.

“I don’t know if Zidane is part of this category because he’s only managed Madrid since the beginning of January.”
