Former Chelsea full-back Felipe Luis has provided one of the main reasons why his former team-mate Eden Hazard cannot rise to the level of Lionel Messi or become the best in the world despite the natural ability of the Argentine.
He said the Belgian did not “have an ambition” to be the best in the world, adding that the Real Madrid star would “play Mario Kart” five minutes before a big game.
Luis believes he needs a greater passion to be among the best in the game, noting that the Belgian captain is too laid back.
Hazard, 30, suffered an injury crisis at Real Madrid.
“Eden, along with Neymar, are the best players I’ve played with – up there with Messi,” Luis told the Daily Mail.
“He didn’t train well, five minutes before the match, he would play Mario Kart in the locker room.
“He was warming up without tying his laces.
“Hazard has so much talent. Maybe he lacks a bit of ambition to say: I’m going to be the best player in the world. Because he could be.
