Chelsea morning news: Mourinho ten-year stint? Hazard wants to improve

José Mourinho Celebrates

A round up of news stories this morning about Chelsea.

Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay has revealed that the Blues want Jose Mourinho to remain as the club’s manager for the next ten years.

Mourinho is into the second year of his second spell at the Blues after returning to the club from Real Madrid.

“I hope he will stay 10 years. Having the security of Jose is great for me – he knows the club, knows me. Jose can deal with the media in a different way from some of the other managers we’ve had. He takes the pressure not only away from the players but also from the club,” Gourlay told the Evening Standard.

Eden Hazard says he’s desperate to improve at Chelsea.

The Belgian has been tipped to sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge after a summer of speculation linking him with moves away from London.

“I can be better. Last season was very good, and the first season as well. Now I am in the third season and if I can win trophies, it could be better,” he told Sky Sports News.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has been wary of comparing Hazard to French legend Zinedine Zidane.

“Can he be another Zinedine Zidane? The first point to compare is the size! To have that ambition is good, I like that. I don't care about shirts and numbers. The players decide, they ask, they change,” said the boss.
