Chelsea star Eden Hazard believes less people notice footballers in London than in Istanbul.

“London has a lot of famous people so you get noticed less in my opinion,” Hazard was quoted as saying by Turkish newspaper Milliyet.


“I rarely get stopped or spoken to on road.

“However, for example when I talk with my good friends Demba Ba and Moussa Sow it seems Istanbul is different.

“They always get noticed when they are out and about in Istanbul. 

“This does not really happen in London of course you do get people come up and talk to you and people who want to take a picture.”

Beşiktaş striker Demba Ba and Hazard were teammates at Chelsea and remain close friends despite the Senegalese international leaving the Premier League outfit this summer.

“Hazard is a nice kid, you know, I like him. I’m five years older than him so for me he’s like my little brother, and I just want to take care of him,” Ba said in an interview with the Telegraph.
