‘He would play Mario Kart before matches’

    Eden Hazard’s Real Madrid career has experienced a tremendous downfall since his arrival in the Spanish capital for a hefty transfer fee of €115m.

    So far, he has appeared 35 times for Los Blancos, scoring four goals and assisting seven throughout his stay to date. (

    Ex-teammate Filipe Luis featured alongside the talented Belgian attacker during his brief stay at Chelsea, during the 2014/15 season under Jose Mourinho.

    Stamford Bridge witnessed Hazard’s flair on the ball in full-flow time and again, in what was undoubtedly an enthralling spectacle to experience for the Chelsea faithful.

    In quotes picked up by DailyMail, Luis compared the Belgian to the likes of Lionel Messi & Neymar, stating they are the best players he has played alongside. But the injury-hit Real Madrid forward lacks the drive to succeed, according to the Brazilian veteran.

    “Eden along with Neymar are the best players I have ever played alongside – up there with Messi. Hazard has so much talent. Perhaps he lacks a little bit of ambition to say: I am going to be the best player in the world. Because he could be,’ he said.

    The full-back, who now plays for Flamengo in Brazil also revealed an astonishing detail on how Hazard would go about training, just before matches were played.

    “He didn’t train well, five minutes before the game he would be playing Mario Kart in the dressing room. He would warm-up without tying his bootlaces up. But then no one could take the ball off of him. He would dribble past three or four players and win games on his own.”

    Injuries have hampered Hazard’s progress in what was once touted to be a transfer that would compensate for the loss of Ronaldo for Madrid.

    The mystifying sleek-footed forward made audiences stand on their feet throughout his Chelsea career, capping more than 350 times for the Blues in seven years, between 2012 & 2019 – assisting 92 times and scoring 110 goals in the process. (transfermarkt)
