Eden Hazard: How Antonio Conte is different from the other Chelsea managers


Chelsea attacking midfielder Eden Hazard says new manager Antonio Conte has demanded hard work from his players so far this summer.

The Belgium international joined the rest of the Chelsea players after enjoying a very positive tournament at the Euro 2016 Championship.

He is determined to put last season's disappointing campaign behind him as he is finally fully fit and ready to help Chelsea achieve their objectives.

"It is hard training but we have to be ready for the season," Hazard told the club's official website.

"It is good. The manager talks a lot with the players, we are here to prepare tactically and we have some games to play. I hope we will see after 10 days what we need to have.

"It is completely different from last summer. After the Euros we didn't get a lot of holiday and we are not ready yet but we are almost ready and we can't wait for the season to start. We need to show to everybody that we are Chelsea, we are big players and a big team.

"I played a very bad season last season. I think I was tired, it is easy to say now I was tired but even when I am not at the maximum level I want to play and last season was difficult.

"I got some injuries, not big ones but it is not easy to play with small injuries when you play in England because the games are difficult, but this season I am ready and everybody is."
