Eden Hazard Is The Laziest Player I’ve Ever Seen In My Life - Mikel Obi

Chelsea legend John Mikel Obi has branded Belgian winger Eden Hazard as the “laziest” teammate he has ever had.

Mikel Obi recounts Eden Hazard as a different type of player than the other players he shared the Chelsea dressing room with.

The 35-year-old former Nigeria international explained that while the rest of the Chelsea team is working hard to impress the coaches and earn a spot in the starting lineup, Eden Hazard will be sitting on the bench.

Mikel Obi believes Eden Hazard could get away with it because he always delivered during games.

He also gave insight into training sessions at Chelsea during his time there, emphasising the team’s competitiveness.

“I never knew how training meant to guys until I joined Chelsea. The way they play games is how they train. There is tackles flying and fights because everybody wants to be in the starting team come the weekend so there is no place for you to say I don’t want to train.

“The only player I saw did that and got away with it was Eden Hazard. He never trained. He is the laziest football I’ve ever seen in my life but come the weekend, he will just get into the squad and win man of the match. He comes in with the trophies and is like guys you see. I think he has lost some weight”, he said.

Meanwhile, Mikel announced his retirement from professional football last September after an 11-year spell at Stamford Bridge.

Mikel joined the club in 2006 and won every major trophy during his time there, including two Premier League titles, the Champions League, and the Europa League.

He made 372 appearances for Chelsea, during what was arguably the most successful period in the club’s history, alongside John Terry, Frank Lampard, and Eden Hazard.
