Jose Mourinho used sarcasm and dark humour to make fun of Eden Hazard on Chelsea TV after the Newcastle game.
Chelsea’s Belgium international star lit up Stamford Bridge on Saturday with his first hat-trick since arriving in the Premier League, and many were left wondering if the attacking midfielder will be crowned the Player of the Season after his spellbinding show against the Magpies.
When asked such a question on Chelsea TV’s “Extra Time” show, the Special One turned on the Premier League for having not credited Hazard so far this season.
I don’t think [Hazard] is in good form because we are in February and [he’s got] zero Player of the Month awards. So I think our league is phenomenal, and it is – better than ever I think – but our league must be full of unbelievable players because this kid has not one single award.
Below see a table of all the winners of the Premier League’s Player of the Month awards so far this season.
