One of Eden Hazard's former teammates has revealed the Belgian superstar used to warm up with his boot laces untied and play games on his phone five minutes before matches.
While his time at Real Madrid in Spain has been far from ideal, Hazard is still widely regarded as one of the most talented footballers in the world.
In a recent interview, ex-Chelsea left-back Filipe Luis recalled what it was like training and playing with the Belgian winger, whom he claimed was not the hardest worker but was still almost impossible to tackle.
"We had great players," he told The Guardian.
See below where Hazard ranks among the highest-paid players in world football today:
"Eden Hazard, (Cesc) Fabregas, Diego Costa. Alongside Neymar, Eden's the best I've played with. He's up there with (Lionel) Messi, winning games alone.
"He didn't run to defend much, didn't train well, and five minutes before games he'd be playing Mario Kart in the dressing room.
"He trained and warmed up laces untied. But he'd go out and no one could take the ball. He'd dribble three or four. If opponents got too close, he'd just pull away, so powerful.
"Watching him enjoy football, so intelligent: one-two, combine, go alone; assist, score, everything. Maybe he lacks the ambition to say, 'I'll be the world's best', because he could be. For talent, the best."
Hazard scored 110 goals and assisted a further 92 strikes in 352 matches for Chelsea before his world-record move to Zinedine Zidane's Los Blancos in 2019.
