Nigerian football legend John Obi Mikel says Eden Hazard is the laziest player he played alongside.

The two players played together at English Premier League giants Chelsea between 2012 and 2017.

However, Mikel stated the Belgium international is a very talented player when speaking to beIN Sports Turkey.

”The laziest player I have played alongside is Eden Hazard,” Mikel said to beIN Sports Turkey.

“Hazard has an incredible talent, maybe not as good as 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.”

The duo won two Premier League titles, one League Cup and one UEFA Europa League trophies.
