Eden Hazard is the Laziest Player I Have Played With – Mikel Obi
Eden Hazard has been brandished the “laziest player I have played with” by former Chelsea team-mate John Obi Mikel, while also insisting Hazard remained an “incredible talent”.
Obi Mikel, now playing in Turkey, spent 11 seasons at Chelsea, five of them alongside Hazard, but was far from complimentary of the Real Madrid forward’s work ethic, while insisting Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was the hardest working.
“The laziest player I have played alongside is Eden Hazard,” Mikel told beIN Sports in Turkey.
“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.”
When asked who the hardest working player he’s played alongside was he said “Frank Lampard,” with no hesitation whatsoever.
