Guus Hiddink furious with Eden Hazard, says I am not his mother


Guus Hiddink is tired of Eden Hazard’s continuous link-ups with Real Madrid and has challenged the player to regain his focus on the pitch.

Speaking ahead of the West Brom game, Hiddink asked Hazard to gain his mental focus back if he wants to success for Chelsea in near future.

Hazard has failed to score for Chelsea this season after winning PFA Player of the season last year. Contrast to that, he has managed to score on for occasions for his country this season.

When asked about reporters on Hiddink putting an arm around Hazard’s shoulders, Hiddink refuted by saying, I am not his mother and players get enough attention from the club to be concentrating on their game.

Hiddink said: “I’m not his mother, they get proper attention. They all have an individual approach. One needs a lash, another needs an arm. Another one needs to be pinched a bit. 

“For me it’s about freshness. If your mind is fresh and players are eager to step up and enjoy training that’s a signal of freshness.

“Its all about freshness. Yesterday was the Ballon d’Or and you see the freshness of the players who win the Ballon d’Or – they are playing like youngsters.”

Hiddink has given Hazard fair warning about recovering from his last season’s glories and get his game back on track once he recovers from injury and comes back to the lineup.
