Chelsea star Eden Hazard has revealed he hates tracking back and helping out in defence but admits he has to help out in defence because that is what Antonio Conte expects from him.
“You don’t need that,” Hazard joked to France Football via Sports Witness.
“You can write that. Don’t tell Conte, but you can write that it’s pointless. If you defend too much, you tire yourself out. If I’ve spent the whole game defending, forget about me being useful after the 60th minute, and I’m quite fit.
“There are people who are meant to defend, while others are there to attack. After that, it’s up to the manager. If that’s what he wants, you need to do it, otherwise you sit on the bench. I defend too. I don’t like it, but I have to with Antonio [Conte].”
