Chelsea ace Eden Hazard says that he is ready to "explode" for manager Jose Mourinho, whose man-management skills are yielding rewards.

Eden Hazard has praised the man-management skills of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and claims that he is ready to "explode" for him.

Hazard has found himself a more prolific goalscorer since Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge in summer 2013, netting 17 times in all competitions last season.

The Belgium international, who was signed by Roberto di Matteo in 2012, claims that his new lease of life is the result of mind games from the Portuguese coach.

"I like the way he gets you going as a player," he told The Express. "There is a lot of respect. This is the best coach in the world. He gives me a lot of confidence. Even after a bad game, he puts me right again.

"He might have a little dig, saying, 'Today we played with 10 men'. But it stops there. Then he will leave me alone, he will not break my head.

"It's the first time I have known a coach who operates like this. The others tended to protect me. Him, he really wants my potential to explode - and he does everything to make it happen."

The 23-year-old has scored twice and created another from his opening seven Premier League outings this season.
