Hazard, ‘The Laziest Player I’ve Ever Played With’ – Mikel
John Obi Mikel has aimed a jab at former Chelsea teammate Eden Hazard.
Nigeria international Mikel, who played 11 seasons at Chelsea, including five alongside the Belgian, said that he had never played with anyone of Hazard’s natural ability.
“Hazard has an incredible talent,” Mikel told beIN Sports in Turkey. (via Goal)
“Maybe not as good as [Lionel] Messi, but he can do whatever he wants with the ball at his feet.
“He didn’t like to train hard. While we were working he was waiting for us to finish training just standing there. But on Sundays he was always the man of the match, it was unbelievable.”
Hazard’s move to Spain has not gone entirely to plan. He has missed time through injury and not had a tremendous impact when he has been on the pitch, scoring just once in 11 games for the club.
