Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard has revealed that he has received support from striker Didier Drogba to help him overcome his woes this season.
The attacking midfielder has suffered from a huge dip in form coupled with transfer rumours linking him to Real Madrid or Paris St Germain. The distraction on and off the field has been very difficult for the Belgian to cope with. He has either been injured or on a poor run of form this season. Hazard was crowned as the PFA Player of the Year, but he has just scored one goal this season.
As Hazard struggles to return to form, the player revealed that he has sought advice from one of the Chelsea legends in the form of Didier Drogba. The Ivory Coast international spent almost a decade at the club in two spells. During this period, he had to go through rough patches himself. On the whole, however, his record with the London club is extremely satisfactory. He has won the club numerous titles by scoring in almost 10 finals. There was also more than 150 goals in the Premier League from just over 350 matches. Drogba was linked with a return to the club in a coaching capacity a few months ago.
However, he is set to continue at Montreal Impact and see out the one year he has left on his contract.“He [Drogba] has always backed me.I’m not sure whether he’d ever experienced periods like that in his career, but I’ve always considered him a bit like a big brother.He’s there for me, whether it’s a text message or a phone call, and he’s helped raise my spirits. But I’ve never doubted myself,” said Hazard, who scored 14 league goals last season. He is yet to score in the league for the 2015-16 season.
