Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne celebrate after the latter scored against AC Milan during a preseason friendly

Kevin De Bruyne has fallen out of  favor under Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho after the manager reportedly said that he was not impressed by the youngster’s performance during training and on matches.

Eden Hazard , the midfielder’s friend and team mate has said that De Bruyne is desperate to prove himself to the manager and get back into his good graces.

Hazard said, “Unfortunately, he does not play much at Chelsea but he wants to really show the coach that he is wrong.”

Meanwhile, Mourinho still keeping the 22-year-old out for most of the games has insisted that he features in the club’s long term plans.
