Chelsea had lost lots of quality young players in the last few years, and Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne are two of the renowned names Chelsea have lost.
Hazard, speaking about Chelsea’s loan system, admitted that the Chelsea team is usually strong, so the loan system provides an opportunity for the younger players to leave and get some experience. He then revealed that he chose to leave to gain experience, as well as Lukaku and De Bruyne.
He told Goal: “I think it is a good system that Chelsea have and they have a lot of young players who need to play. At Chelsea you have a very good team so it is difficult sometimes for the younger players.
“There can be the opportunity to play in Chelsea, but you have to decide whether you need another year away [at the end of every season]. If the player thinks he is ready to go back to Chelsea then they will let you go.
“As we saw with me, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne. If you want to go – it is your decision. I am not sure, but I think it was the decision from those guys to go – as well as me away from Chelsea. But the system is very good for the player and it is good that they don’t block you and, if you want to go then go.”
