Eden Hazard: No regrets over Chelsea move

Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has no regrets about moving to Stamford Bridge - despite the sacking of the manager who brought him to the club.

The 21-year-old was signed by the European champions and their boss Roberto Di Matteo in the summer from Lille when he was not short of options among the continent's elite.

It has been a turbulent start for the Belgium international as the Blues have crashed out of the Champions League, while Di Matteo has been replaced by former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez.

Hazard told The Independent: "Look, I knew before I came here where I was 'putting my feet' and the sort of club I was coming to. I knew that Chelsea was a club that changed its manager reasonably often.

"Obviously I didn't intend it to be that quick because Di Matteo was the person who signed me and I was looking forward to a relationship and working with him for some time. But, I don't have any regrets.

"We have a new manager now and again it is about stressing we must try to get as high as we can up the table, go as far as we can in the cups, play well and win as many trophies as we can.

"I think it's the first time it has happened to me in my career when a manager has gone. It's never easy. It's something that is part of football life. We have to put our disappointment to one side. Although I was sorry because he was the manager who signed me."

aybe Southampton's objectives have changed. They were looking to be a Champions League club, I believe. I love this quote so much. So arrogant. So poignant. You can see where it's all gone wrong.
