Eden Hazard, Diego Costa's ginger Mourinho?

It's no spoof, though first reported by the Daily Mail... but it seems our new No.10 and Belgium - and FIFA 15 - posterboy Eden Hazard might be headed on a collision course with new summer signing, Diego Costa.

Or may be not. I hope not.

The 23-year-old Premier League Young Player of the Year 2013/2014, whilst speaking Saturday morning on Sky Sports show, Soccer AM, lightheartedly questioned Costa's age, same way Jose Mourinho questioned that of a certain Samuel Eto'o, only that this time there were no concealed cameras.

The newly acquired striker and Brazilian Spanish international who joined us last month for £32million from Spanish champions Atletico Madrid has often seen his age subjected to conjecture, probably owing to his looks, but Hazard who is gradually becoming the team's mouthpiece (is he eyeing Terry's armband?) has quipped that the 25-year-old is older than he claims.

The show is now on on Sky Sports 1 for those who are interested in watching the whole interview, where Hazard also claims he's the best thing in Belgium alongside French fries, beer and chocolate, but excerpts on Costa include: "He looks old, I think he`s old. He is 25 but I don`t know if it is true."

OMG Hazard!

Is Eden a Full-On GINGER or a Day Walker? Looks like he has no soul. Chuckles.

100% a joke, though I admit once thinking the Brazilian may have indeed racked up more city miles than officially disclosed. But how did you come up with your ratio StamforD? Have you always thought Hazard was daft, to some negligible degree, or your 'stat' is borne out of some spur-of-the-moment-inspired considerations?

Same thing as when he said that he doesn't make any decisions about his career. It is his wife who does them for him and thus he will join PSG or something to that matter. The kid is a joker and prankster and that is quite alright. I bet Costa won't take it to heart and will probably try to get one over Eden either publicly or privately soon enough..

Hazard was only joking so it shouldn't be taken seriously.

The Josh: A combination of Spontaneous + Preconceived Considerations. He is silly at times (Not saying in a Malicious Way).

expensive joke to say the least, same way Jose was 'joking' about Eto'o's age and it caused problems...

It looks as though these Belgians needs a serious teaching session on how to stay out of trouble when facing the press; stuffs like these could derail squad harmony...
