‘I Don’t Care’ – Mourinho Gives Brutally Honest Response Over £32m Wizard

Ahead of Chelsea’s opening Champions League group game against Schalke on Wednesday, Jose Mourinho was asked if he decided to give Eden Hazard the number 10 shirt this season, and he made it clear that he wasn’t interested in such matters.

The 23-year-old wore the number 17 shirt at Stamford Bridge during his first two seasons in England, but he took the number 10 shirt this summer, after its previous owner Juan Mata moved to Manchester United in January.

Speaking to the club’s official website at the time, Hazard said: ”It is my favourite number and is one I am used to wearing for the national team, as well as the one worn by some of my heroes from when I was a kid, like Zinedine Zidane.

“I hope it brings me a lot of luck in the future and I look forward to the fans seeing me in it next season.”

The winger has started this season in very impressive form, and he is believed to be close to signing a new deal at Chelsea that would make him the club’s highest-paid player.

His current contract expires in 2017, and this new agreement would see reportedly see last season’s PFA Young Player of the Year earn £200,00-per-week plus performance-related bonuses.

Hazard has completed 25 take-ons in the Premier League so far this season, more than any other player.
