Puel looks forward to Hazard reunion

By SFC Media Sun 30 Oct Saints vs Chelsea

Claude Puel is looking forward to a reunion with his former player, Eden Hazard, who he tutored during his time at Lille.

Puel helped bring the Belgian superstar through the ranks at the French club and has been admiring his performances for this afternoon’s opponents, Chelsea, this season.

"I think we can see a good level for Eden,” said Puel. “He has come back very well.

“Perhaps last year was a little difficult for him, but he's come back to what he was two years ago.

“It's a pleasure to see him again. Of course, I know Eden very well. I started at Lille and he was 16. He was a young boy, and now he is a man, but always with the same qualities.”
