Chelsea star Eden Hazard has predicted that teammates Cesar Azpilicueta and Gary Cahill could become managers in the future, Sky Sports reports.

The two-time Chelsea player of the season believes he couldn’t see himself managing a professional team.

When asked talking to Sky Sports show Soccer AM, Hazard used the duo as good examples of future managers because they’re defensive players.

Hazard is quoted by Sky Sports saying:

“Azpilicueta is good at talking about football, Cahill also. I think the manager is more for defensive players.”

Why would Azpilicueta and Cahill make good managers?

It’s no surprise that Hazard has used the pair as future managerial examples.

Cahill being Chelsea’s captain is a leader and he couldn’t have more passion for playing the game. John Terry and Frank Lampard’s presence helped the Englishman when he first joined the club.

Azpilicueta is intelligent and has a great attitude. Hazard labelled the Spaniard as ‘the teacher’s pet’ so the 28-year-old has learnt a lot from head coach Antonio Conte.
