The sight of Hazard walking off the pitch at Leicester in what proved to be Mourinho's final game in charge of Chelsea with an injury was viewed as a symbol that the Portuguese tactician had lost the support of his dressing room and now the Belgian midfielder has spoken about his feelings towards Mourinho in an interview with HLN.
And he has promised to stop talking about Real Madrid after once again flirting with a move to the Spanish giants this week.
Starsport understands several senior figures at United have raised concerns about recent events as Mourinho tries to stop the team's season from disintegrating. "After the title, we asked Mourinho for extra holidays".
"I am a Lazio player but it is obvious that I was pleased that a coach of his stature came to watch the match", Savic was quoted as saying by the Mirror.
Milenkovic is reportedly the latest name on his target list, and Mourinho was in Podgorica this week to see the Serb keep a clean sheet away to rivals Montenegro. We didn't win, we got into a sort of routine, training without having fun, it was better for all parties that we parted ways.
"I think he (Pogba) has done it on goal, and I don't think that is right", Saha, 40, said."It's the wrong communication, it puts pressure on the manager. with those talks you should do it in the dressing room with your manager".
He believes Chelsea could have gone on to become a force under Mourinho, but regrets that they fell into a "negative cycle" that forced his departure in December 2015. If everything goes well, Mourinho will experience football like me: easily.
"He's managed to win trophies at United".
"Fortunately for me, you look at the best managers over the last 25-30 years".
Carrick expects a proven performer to deliver further success at United if given the necessary time and support, with there few coaches in the modern era who can claim to have matched his record.
"That's not me assuming that that's going to happen just because I am where I am now, and the next step is that and the next step is that, and then all of a sudden this is where I'll end up because I know that's not how it works".
