Eden Hazard won't follow Zinedine Zidane to Man United
- Chelsea star is a big fan of Zidane, currently out of job.
- Ex-Madrid boss has been linked with the head coach role at Old Trafford.
- Hazard would not follow his idol there.
Zinedine Zidane has always been an idol for Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard and yet while the Belgian has unrequitedly flirted with Real Madrid for over a year (even when Zidane was still there), he knows he won't follow the former Los Blancos head coach if he somehow winds up at Old Trafford next summer.
Hazard told France Football his adoration for Zidane has a limit: ''If he goes to Manchester tomorrow, for instance, I will not be going there.''

To Hazard's relief, Zidane is reportedly considered by the United hierarchy but only as a tertiary option at best. Mauricio Pochettino is always the No 1 in this regard with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer possibly giving the board headaches as to how to settle on a permanent head coach role for the next season onwards.

The Norwegian only has a contract until 12 May but he won't reject a possibility of assuming full responsibilities at Old Trafford. He's yet to lose a game, after all.

Speaking of Hazard and his club, United have narrowed the 11-point gap on the Blues down to just 3 points. The Reds remain sixth but we're already level on points with Arsenal. Hopefully, Chelsea's season will continue to come crashing down after Maurizio Sarri blasted his players in public following the 2-0 defeat to Arsenal the way even Jose Mourinho didn't
