Chelsea star Eden Hazard has questioned manager Jose Mourinho’s judgement by saying he wasn’t sure letting compatriot Kevin de Bruyne leave last summer was the right idea, according to the Daily Express.
De Bruyne has been linked with a return to the Premier League recently as his form at Wolfsburg goes from strength to strength.
And Hazard now believes that the decision to cut him off was too hasty, and that the 23-year-old does indeed have what it takes to cut it in England.
“He is a great player. Mourinho decided to let him go and not play him,” Hazard said.
“It was not my decision, even though I know very well that he could play at Chelsea because he has tremendous qualities.
“I think at Chelsea, you have more pressure than Wolfsburg. It’s a shame he’s gone but he’ll have a successful career.”
