      Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard has put forth a surprising candidate for the club’s next manager following Mauricio Pochettino’s recent departure.

      Pochettino parted ways with Chelsea by mutual agreement after just one season.

      The Argentine 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, started 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, a 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.”
