Pochettino parted ways with Chelsea by mutual agreement after just one season, having guided the team to a sixth-place finish and a return to European competition.

As the club explores potential replacements, Hazard has suggested an unexpected option: his former teammate Cesc Fabregas. Hazard, who played for Chelsea from 2012 to 2019, believes Fabregas could be a suitable choice despite his lack of permanent managerial experience.

Fabregas, currently at Como in Italy, began as a player before transitioning to an interim managerial role in 2023 after Moreno Longo’s dismissal. He later became an assistant under new manager Osian Roberts.

When asked about Roberto De Zerbi, another candidate for the role, Hazard told talkSPORT: “Maybe. I have my friend also in Como. He can be the first manager.”

Reflecting on Pochettino’s exit, Hazard expressed his disappointment: “I was a bit sad, to be fair. I think he did a great job. I know people want Chelsea to be in the top four but it’s just a season of transition. He’s a great manager. I wish him good luck. Let’s see who’s going to be there in the future.”
