Mourinho attacks Hazard

COBHAM, England - Jose Mourinho has criticised Eden Hazard by claiming the Chelsea winger is not yet ready to sacrifice himself fully for the sake of his team.

Hazard, was apparently critical of Mourinho's tactics during this week's 3-1 Champions League semi-final second-leg defeat by Atletico Madrid that denied Chelsea a place in the final.

But Mourinho then highlighted the mistake made by Hazard for Atletico's opening goal — the Belgium international was caught out at the far post — as an example of a weakness that remains in the player's game.

"When the comments come from a player like Eden, it's normal. He's not the kind of player ready to sacrifice himself 100 per cent for the team and his mates," Mourinho said.
