Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard has revealed he hates tracking back despite admitting that he has to continue to do so under Antonio Conte.
The Blues have notably changed their style of play to suit the defensive plans of Conte who reverted to his favourite three-man defence since their 3-0 drubbing by Arsenal last October, which saw them lift the Premier League title last season.
Hazard who recently returned from an ankle problem while on international duty with Belgium, has come out to admit that he does not like defending but maintained that aspect has been a key factor in their game under Antonio Conte.
The 26-year-old claimed that it is ‘pointless’ for all the players on the pitch to defend, revealing that he tires out quickly after an hour of football if he does too much of defending.
During an interview with France Football, the Belgian has it that tracking back is not necessary, hinting that Chelsea defends too much under Conte and believes that some players are ‘meant to defend’ while ‘others are there to attack’.
Chelsea have started the season on a decent note but it is believed that the presence of Hazard could take the league champions to a similar level that saw them win the title last season.
