Yaya Toure: Real Madrid ace Hazard's greatest strength? His big A**!

Manchester City great Yaya Toure says Real Madrid ace Eden Hazard is a success thanks to the size of his backside!

Toure clashed regularly with Hazard when the Belgian was with Chelsea.

He recalled to the Athletic: “The size of his butt, it almost became a joke, but it is very important to the way he plays football. Hazard is so dangerous that when the ball hits him he may have less than five seconds before the opponent is on top of him.

"I know, thanks to my experience at City, that you have to limit his time on the ball. When the ball hits Hazard, he can already feel the opponent coming towards him, so he waits until the last moment and uses his a** to block him.

"He pushes the opponent back almost like a punch and then, when he has opened up that space between himself and the defender, he springs up and begins the attack."
