Eden Hazard has been labelled as the “laziest player I have played alongside” by former Chelsea team-mate John Obi Mikel.
The Belgian played alongside the defensive midfielder for five-l years at Stamford Bridge, but has been criticised for his lethargic attitude in training.
Mikel though does maintain that Hazard has “an incredible talent” having won the Premier League title together in 2015.
“The laziest player I have played alongside is Eden Hazard,” Mikel told reporters in Turkey.
“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 man of the match, it was unbelievable.”
Hazard’s efforts last year, almost singlehandedly at times, helped Chelsea finish third and win the Europa League under Maurizio Sarri.
