Eden Hazard was shackled at Chelsea by Jose Mourinho, hints Vincent Kompany in swipe at the Man Utd boss

The Manchester City captain faces his Belgium team-mate tomorrow and says Maurizio Sarri is perfectly matched for Hazard, compared to previous managers Mourinho and Antonio Conte.

Kompany said: “I think he was due an offensive manager. I can’t remember him having that a lot in his career.

“Eventually a manager like this is what he needed, no matter where he was, to get the best out of him. The future is bright for him.”

Hazard, who won the title with Mourinho and Conte, will attempt to close a 10-point gap on City when he faces them at Stamford Bridge.

Kompany added: “Chelsea is one of the most exciting teams in the Premier League this year.

“Look at the way they try and build up, the way they try and play through the middle.

“The talent they have upfront to create chances, you can only say that they are the real deal. And that is what makes this game exciting I think. It will be a good game.”
