Eden Hazard “was a bit sad” to see Chelsea part company with head coach Mauricio Pochettino after just one season in charge.

Pochettino left Chelsea by mutual consent last week after a trophyless campaign and a sixth-place finish in the Premier League.

Chelsea great Hazard, who spent seven years at Stamford Bridge, believes the former Tottenham boss deserved more time.

“I was a bit sad,” he told talkSPORT. “I think he did a great job. I know people want Chelsea to be in the top four but it’s a season of transition.

“He’s a great manager. I wish him good luck and let’s see who is going to be there in the future.”

Chelsea are reported to have whittled their shortlist to four names – Thomas Frank, Kieran McKenna, Roberto De Zerbi and Enzo Maresca

However, Hazard cheekily suggested that former Chelsea team-mate Cesc Fabregas could be an option for the Blues.

Fabregas is working as an assistant manager with Italian side Como and helped guide them to Serie A promotion this season.

Asked about possible contenders for the job, Hazard said: “I have my friend in Como. He can be the first manager.”
