“Tracking back is pointless” – Hazard claims

by -

Eden Hazard is one of the key talents of Antonio Conte‘s Chelsea and, few weeks ago the Belgian striker had praised the Italian manager and the way he has improved thanks to his tactical work.

However, today, the same Eden Hazard brands as “pointless” one of Conte’s main tactical main options. “You don’t need tracking back,” – Hazard told France Football. – “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].”
