Eden Hazard: Admits he will have bad games in a Chelsea shirt
Eden Hazard has warned Chelsea fans that he could still play badly despite the huge transfer fee - but he's relaxed about it.
Hazard became the most expensive Premier League signing of the summer so far when he joined the Blues from Lille in a £32million deal in June.
The Belgium international comes with a huge reputation having been named Ligue 1 Player of the Year in each of the past two seasons.
With supporters excited at the prospect of Hazard helping the Stamford Bridge outfit launch a serious title challenge, the 21-year-old playmaker has moved to downplay expectations.
"I am going to play bad games," Hazard told The Sun.
But Hazard takes a phlegmatic approach to any potential difficulties that lie ahead.
He added: "My transfer fee does not put pressure on me. I am 'Zen' - very calm - about it."
Hazard is set to play for Chelsea against Manchester City in the FA Community Shield on Sunday.
