Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says he is surprised that Belgium invited Eden Hazard to the national team for their forthcoming World Cup qualifiers.
The playmaker has not played competitive football since suffering an ankle injury while on international duty back in June.
Hazard had to undergo surgery and he missed the pre-season games as he battled fitness concerns. The Italian claims the player should have been given time to fully recover. Conte might be afraid of his star player injuring himself again or straining the recovering ankle while on international duty. Chelsea have missed him so far and any more strains would really set the club against his national team.
“I was a coach of the national team with Italy so I respect the decision of the coach. If Hazard isn’t ready he will not play, it’s why he doesn’t play with us,” Conte proclaimed.
