Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, believes that his Belgian forward, Eden Hazard, who has been prolific this season can score up to 40 goals as long as he lets him have fun and he also said that it is “easy” to “stimulate” the forward.
Sarri who joined Chelsea this summer, has been impressed with the Belgium international.
Hazard has only scored 16 Premier League goals in his most fruitful season with the Blues.
But the Italian insisted on Friday that he needed no special strategy to help Hazard get on the scoresheet on a regular basis.
The former Napoli boss added he was convinced that his star man will thrive if he combines “having fun” with a little more aggression.
“It is easy to stimulate Hazard – as long as you let him have fun,” Sarri told Sky Sports.
“He’s very easy, it didn’t need strategies from me. He doesn’t get influenced by the media and what happens around him.
“As long as he’s having fun and he plays. And he loves playing football. But you need important objectives for important players.
“And he can improve if he becomes a little bit more aggressive and gives the best of himself.”
Chelsea face Southampton this weekend with the hope to keep the pressure on league leaders Manchester City who face second-placed Liverpool on Sunday.
