Hazard was not at the club during Mourinho's previous stint having only joined the club for £32m from Lille last summer, but it the Portuguese manager's reputation with the more experienced players has had the young Belgian eager to train under him.
"They already knew for a long time at Chelsea that he was going to sign and they all told me that it would be a good thing for me," Hazard told the Guardian, "José Mourinho is someone special and it's a pleasure to have him as a coach.
"Maybe in the first training session I will be a bit intimidated - after all, it's José Mourinho. But he is also a man, with two arms and two legs and so, in the end, I will have a normal relationship with him, just as I have with my previous coaches."
Hazard was nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award and drafted into the Team of the Season in his debut campaign in the Premier League, but he insists that he can improve on the impressive return of 13 goals scored for the Blues so far.
"This season I gave a lot of assists but next season I want to score more goals ... I want to score 50 or 60 like [Lionel] Messi or [Cristiano] Ronaldo," Hazard said, with a smile. "I lack that killer instinct. Messi and Ronaldo are born to score, it's in their nature but I still choose the nice dribble or the beautiful pass too often. I have to shoot more."
With many other attacking talents like Stefan Jovetic and Hulk linked with Chelsea and on-loan players like Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne set to make a return to Stamford Bridge, Hazard acknowledged that the players at the club must be at their peak at all times if they want to be in the first team.
"Being linked to players is normal at big clubs, and certainly at Chelsea, where everyone knows the reputation of [the owner] Roman Abramovich," Hazard said.
"He buys a lot of players. At such a club you never have time to rest. You have to be 100% all of the time. But even if Chelsea bought nobody, I would still have to fight for my position."
