How did Azplicueta manage to tag Eden Hazard as his toughest opponent even given the fact that he is no longer doing well for Real Madrid and you might as where exactly did he terrorize Azplicueta at to name him his worst opponent.
Well here is your reply below;
Speaking to The Athletic Azpilicueta said: “The hardest opponent I have faced was Eden Hazard.
“Obviously there were many in other teams, but I will always say training every day with Eden was something that gave me a good taste of the Premier League.
“To face the best player in the Premier League, always one against one — I could take that experience into the games.
“I was ready to face anyone after facing Eden every day.”
The Spain international admitted Real Madrid attacker Hazard was so good it left him wanting to “kick him”, but even then the Belgian wouldn’t go down.
Azpilicueta continued: “The way he turned… he could get the ball and turn so quickly.
“He could shoot with his right and left foot. He was strong, too. Even if you wanted to kick him sometimes, you couldn’t put him down. It was quite impressive!
“There were occasions I would get the better of him but, to be fair, sometimes he was a bit lazy in training. But when he wanted to be on it, he was very hard to stop.”
