- Eden Hazard has shows leadership qualities during loss to Manchester City
- The Belgian captain consoled every member of the team after the shootout loss to City
- The 28-year-old's gesture has caught the eye of Chelsea fans as they want him to be captain
Eden Hazard exhibited his leadership qualities when he consoled his teammates after Chelsea Carabao Cup loss to Manchester City.
The 28-year-old shook hands with devastated players after Raheem Sterling scored the decisive kick that won the trophy for City.
The video clip will give Chelsea supporters something to smile about after they were left fuming at their lack of leaders in recent weeks.
Supporters at Stamford Bridge have been critical of club captain Cesar Azpilicueta following Kepa Arrizabalaga's refusal to be substituted from Maurizio Sarri's command.
Fans believes the likes of John Terry and Didier Drogba would have intervened before the drama became a crisis.
But the Chelsea faithfuls believe with just the Europa League and the Premier League top-four to contend for, Hazard's actions could go a long way to make him captain of the team for the rest of the season.

"Looks like a captain to me #CFC".
A third claimed: "Look at Eden Hazard here after we lost the penalty shoot-out. Showing more leadership qualities than our actual captain..."
