Eden Hazard has confessed how he has been frustrating past and present managers since moving to Stamford Bridge.

According to a UK Sun report, the Belgian star, who was reacting to Maurizio Sarri outburst ahead of Thursday’s Carabao Cup semi-final clash against Tottenham stressed they were demanding too much from him.

"I’ve frustrated all my managers and now I’m still frustrating Sarri. I frustrated Mourinho. They think I need to score more, do more of this or that. And the next coach, I’ll frustrate him too,” Hazard warned, even as he was quick to add he could remain at Chelsea after all.

"After the World Cup, I intended to leave. Now I’m having one of my best seasons, so I don’t need something different,” he said.

Speaking further, the 28-year-old playmaker, who at the last count has won various silverware with the Blues insists he does not want his success as a player to be determined by the number of trophies’ won or the Ballon d’Or.

“We associate football too much with the word win.

“With young players it’s the same, they have to win, win, win. Little by little players forget to enjoy it. I’ve always put pleasure before winning.

“What bothers me is that players are put into the top three or four because of the trophies they’ve won and their statistics.

That’s not what I’m after, I just want to enjoy myself on the pitch. So top five, ten, 20, that’s not my problem.

“If a bloke thinks only of stats I won’t be in his list of top players. But if he thinks about enjoying the game, I’ll be in the top three. What I have already achieved is very good. When I look at my career, I think ‘That’s great’.

“If I end up with 30 goals and 20 assists this season, people will say ‘Yeah, that’s exceptional’ even if I play some rubbish games. But that’s not what I want,” Hazard said, even as he found time to speak on Chelsea's clash with Tottenham in the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg.

At some point, everyone loses. Against Tottenham we had the right to be disappointed, but honestly I had a great time.

“I wasn’t happy, because we lost, but deep down I was happy how I played and how we played.

“That was also what the coach said and I like that.

“I would rather play like the game we had against Tottenham where I loved it.

“I might be a bit different to the best players in the world. Because the best think about scoring, passing, trophies, and I’ve never been like that. So, maybe, yes.

“When you see all that happened in Belgium after the World Cup it was like we had won it, such was the emotion we gave to all the people.

With the trophy it would have been better but seeing all the smiles on people’s faces when we came back to Brussels was amazing. That’s what I play for,” he submitted.
