In a viral video shared on social media, Hazard was on the ObiOne Podcast and confirmed that he learned English from former Nigerian internationals Victor Moses and John Mikel Obi.

Hazard played alongside Mikel Obi for five seasons at Chelsea and had a good relationship with the Super Eagles legend.

"I learnt English by listening to Mikel Obi and Victor Moses," he said.

The former Chelsea star's revelation stirred different reactions from fans on social media platform X.

"Explains why he sounds like a Nigerian 😂😂. He picked the accent too."

@insanespotter said:

"More of this interviews.. This is how you know most footballer have good humors. I see how he got his African accent 😂. Dude is actually funny.. It’s also looking like Mikel had a strong positive influence in that Chelsea squad…. Nice one guys!"

@TaeWap_ said:

"I thought they said Ghanaians speak better English than Nigerians. Why didn't he learn from Michael Essien😂. God abeg ooh."

@jstarcity said:

"He’s a likeable guy generally; that’s what everyone says about him. I can see it. Shame he didn’t hit heights; man tore the league apart in those 3 seasons"

@IguadeVB said:

"“After a good game, one or two is Nice” He indeed learned English from Mikel and Moses."

@Femi_Derricks said:

"The moment he said “ehn” after he was asked if he learned it from them, I knew he truly learned it from them. That “ehn” sounds Nigerian."

Hazard disagrees with Ronaldo’s Ligue 1 ranking

Sports Brief earlier reported that Hazard has disagreed with Cristiano Ronaldo’s comments that the Saudi Pro League is better than the French Ligue 1.

The former Chelsea forward is of the opinion that the Saudi Pro League have big players now, but they do not have big teams, unlike the French league, where they do not have many big players, but they have bigger teams.
