Eden Hazard has struggled for form so far this season as Chelsea have only won three times in 12 matches.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho even dropped Hazard to the bench for the 2-1 defeat to Porto in the Champions League.

Hazard’s father Thierry says his son is not worried about his form and is confident he will get back to his best sooner rather than later.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror he said: “Eden has played first-team football since the age of 16.

“In almost six years, he has never been suspended or suffered a big injury. You have to put things in perspective. Each year it sets new goals that he makes a really point in achieving.

“Personally, he is conscious of having to improve his stats. His strength lies in knowing exactly where he is at, but never gets overwhelmed: he does not purposely miss a penalty … but any cloud has a silver lining.

“If he plays less, he would arrive less tired at the Euros which he is so keen on playing because it takes place in his back garden, with his own watching.”

Thierry has also praised Chelsea manager Mourinho and the way he handles both of his sons.

“I’ve dealt with him on two occasions to discuss the loan Thorgan and Eden’s contract extension,” he said.

“I like what he has to say. I continue to support his choices. Eden as well who understands and accepts them.

“Moreover, I think he handles him well. When he drops him, he is not punishing him, I am sure, but it is by tactical choice.”
