The Portuguese made a triumphant return to Stamford Bridge when Chelsea ran out 2-0 winners in their opening Premier League game of the season against newly promoted Hull City Tigers.
Goals from Oscar and Frank Lampard were sufficient for the Blues to take three points despite an obvious drop in the quality of play during the second period from attacking players such as Hazard.
Speaking to The Daily Mail, Mourinho revealed that he was looking for more from players of Hazard's quality, in hopes the Belgian will fulfil his potential and become a world-class footballer.
"I want more responsibility and more ambition. When you are a normal player you have to be happy if you perform OK, when you have actions during the game that show quality. But when you are a top talent you can't waste that talent, when somebody gives you that talent. I think at this talent level he is somebody very above us," Mourinho explained.
"I want to give him that responsibility and ambition, for the kid to be better and better and to express himself on the pitch match after match."
Besides goal-scorer Lampard, Mourinho's starting line-up against Hull also featured the likes of Petr Cech, John Terry and Ashley Cole, players from his previous spell at Chelsea six years ago. Although the Blues now boasts some exciting young talents, the former Real Madrid boss believed experienced players should not be overlooked.
"The young people, they need the older generation to be amongst them, playing or not playing, being in the line-up or not, we need these four, five players that we have - and they're doing fantastic work - to support the other kids," Mourinho shared.
