– I wouldn’t have been able (to have a career like CR7). Spending an hour in an ice-cold bath after a workout? No. (I preferred) to be in peace, with my friends, playing cards and drinking a beer. My recovery was playing with my children in the garden for two hours. If he had been like Cristiano Ronaldo, who is the example of a good footballer, he would have had a “burnout” – said Hazard, highlighting that, in technical terms, the Portuguese veteran was no better than him.

– Messi is unique in football terms. I think he’s the greatest in history, it’s impossible to take away from him. Cristiano is a bigger player than me, but in terms of pure football, I believe he wasn’t better than me. Neymar, maybe. – he highlighted.

Hazard also defended himself against the criticism he heard for being overweight when he was a player, especially during his time in Madrid.

– I’m not saying that he abused food. She didn’t go to McDonald’s every day. No one can last 16 years as a professional like that. I simply didn’t care. He liked to eat and drink with friends. Diets are useless unless you want to play until you’re 40. I knew it wouldn’t be my case – he observed.
