Eden Hazard is an unbelievable talent but when it came to training hard he wanted nothing to do with it.

This is the opinion of a former teammate who spent four and a half years with him at Chelsea.

Nigerian international John Obi Mikel played with Hazard week in week out at the Stamford Bridge club.

Mikel was in ore of the talent that Hazard had, but was also in disbelief at the work ethic the Belgian demonstrated.

In an interview with beIn sports network in Turkey where Mikel now plays his football, he talks about eh good and the bad in regard to real Madrid front man.

“Hazard has an incredible talent.”

“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 has struggled since his big-money move to Madrid from Chelsea.

Much has been made of his physical fitness, especially his weight.
