Mourinho punishes Hazard for skipping training

London’s Chelsea FC manager José Mourinho dropped Belgian international and Chelsea winger Eden Hazard from the squad in their Champions League group match against FC Schalke 04 (Germany).

The 22-year-old Belgian was punished for skipping Chelsea’s training.

Hazard had missed Monday’s training after his late return from a visit to his former club Lille (France). The Belgian had been invited to Lille’s Ligue 1 game against Monaco.  

“I don’t want to lie. He is not injured.

“Did he forget the time? Look, he’s a kid. Kids make mistakes. He didn’t play. He wanted to play. He was sad because he didn’t play. We won without him. So, end of story. Let’s forget Eden because I didn’t select him,” The Guardian quotes Mourinho as saying.
