Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has admitted that he had been frustrating all his managers since his arrival at Stamford Bridge in 2012.

The Belgium international has scored 79 league goals under four permanent managers since his 2012 move to Stamford Bridge

"In my career, I've frustrated all my coaches. And with Sarri, once again, I frustrate him. I frustrated Mourinho, Guus Hiddink, Antonio Conte and current boss Maurizio Sarri.

"They think that I need to mark more, do more of this and more of that. And the next coach that I have, I'll frustrate him as well." Hazard told France Football.

Hazard who has been the  subject of frequent transfer speculations has scored 12 goals in all competitions this season has now been linked with a move to Real Madrid this month.

Admitting he wanted to leave the Blues after last summer's World Cup, Hazard has always planned to play elsewhere but says he isn't going anywhere just yet.

"I have won everything in England, apart from the Community Shield, but that doesn't mean that I'm leaving," he said.

"I have always said that I wanted to explore something different after England. But there are also things that might make me stay.

"After the World Cup, I wanted to leave, but in the end I stayed at Chelsea and I'm playing one of best seasons so far.

"So I don't think that I need a different challenge. But that doesn't mean that I will become better."
