Ex-Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi reveals the ‘laziest player’ he ever trained with at Chelsea
Former Super Eagles captain, Mikel Obi has named the ‘laziest player’ he ever trained with during his 11 seasons with Chelsea.
In an interview with beIN Sports, the former Chelsea midfielder named Eden Hazard as his laziest former teammate.
“The laziest player I have played alongside is Eden Hazard,” the Nigerian said. “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 man of the match, it was unbelievable.”
When asked who the hardest working player he’s played alongside was he said “Frank Lampard.”
Both Mikel and Hazard played at Stamford Bridge for several years before they left the club. The Nigerian now plays for Turkish side Trabzonspor, while the Belgium international plays for Real Madrid in Spain.
