Hazard coy on Chelsea future

Eden Hazard (TEAMtalk)

Cape Town - Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard says that he's not willing to describe his Chelsea future as absolutely certain, and insists his focus at the moment is on Euro 2016.

The Belgium international failed to repeat his sensational form which, in 2014/15, helped his club to a Premier League title in a record number of matches.

The disastrous nature of The Blues' season, which saw talismanic manager Jose Maurinho get the sack for the first time in his career, has given rise to speculation as to whether the club can retain the services of their top players.

"If I tell you I'm staying at Chelsea with 100% certainty, this is not the case," he told Sky Sports News. "For now, I'm 100% sure I'll compete at the Euros. After, I will think of Chelsea, but I want to finish well at the club," indicating that he may prefer to leave the club after a more successful season.

"We all know my season. I will not repeat, it was bad, but now it's over and I'm focusing for the Euro," he continued.

"The last game where I gave everything was against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. After that I was injured. And this is where the season has just ended for Chelsea.

"So I took my time to get back to fitness. I will attack the challenge of the European Championship in full possession of my faculties.

"I'm happy," he added. "I'm always happy. I have spoken to Antonio Conte. He said good luck at the Euros and we will see after the Championships."
