Chelsea Star Eden Hazard Regrets Not Playing In Same Team With Okocha, Endorses Foundation


Chelsea ace Eden Hazard says he regrets not playing in the same team with former Nigeria international Austin Okocha during his playing days.

Hazard confessed that he watched the former PSG star while growing up and even learnt some tricks as it concerns getting past opponents from him.

” I honestly would have loved to play with him, because he is not the type you want to play against. Maybe I wasn’t so lucky to be born at a time which makes it impossible to play alongside him”, Hazard said.

” I learnt a lot from him while he was at PSG, his step overs and ability to take on opponent were stuffs I practised as a little kid, I think not playing alongside him is one regret I have”.

The Belgian ace made the above known during a short interview section where he unveiled a shirt supporting the Austin Jay Jay Okocha Foundation.
