Chelsea legend Frank Lampard revealed that there were rumours in mid-season about Chelsea magician Eden Hazard being difficult during training and he praised Antonio Conte for the way he handled it.
“Antonio Conte took on a team in a bad place and there were a few individuals who had their worst seasons in Chelsea shirts and he fixed it,” Lampard is quoted on Metro UK.
“Mid-season there were rumours that Eden Hazard was being a bit difficult on the training field but Conte dealt with it immediately.
“He came down on it with an iron fist and then he put an arm around him and that has brought the best out in him.
“With the older players, you just want honesty from the manager and that is what has happened with John Terry – he laid it on the line early with John and that has really helped with his season.”
