Charly Musonda has revealed how Chelsea teammate and compatriot Eden Hazard has helped him improve as a player.

The 21-year-old has recently been embroiled in controversy after he expressed frustration at the lack of playing time he has been receiving at Stamford Bridge.

But Musonda says he is continuing to work hard in training and leaning on his ‘good friend’ when he needs too.

“Eden has taught me a lot coming through and he still teaches me a lot in training and after games,” Musonda told the club’s website.

“We are good friends and you saw in the game against Nottingham Forest that there is a good understanding on the pitch. I am very lucky to have a guy like him here.

“Overall I am working more physically now. I am working on my physical condition in the gym because that is the most important, that is my next phase coming into this league. The rest is training and doing as much as I can there and taking it step-by-step.”
