Eden Hazard and Demba Ba played together at Chelsea for just one-and-a-half years, but they developed a strong friendship with each other during that short period.
Senegal international striker Ba moved on to Turkish giants Besiktas in the summer transfer window, but he has still maintained his friendship with the Belgian winger.
Following Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Schalke at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League on Wednesday, Ba posted the following photo on Instagram along with the message: ‘My bro @hazardeden_10 , you trying to do like me. I can give you lesson if you want’.
It was, of course, a joke from Ba, who was just teasing his friend. Hazard understood the spirit in which the former Newcastle United star had made the comment and replied accordingly.
@dembabafoot we don't have the same quality bro you kno hahaha.— Eden hazard (@hazardeden10) September 19, 2014
Hazard will be in action later today when Chelsea take on Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League.
Who knows, the 23-year-old Belgium international might score with a volley. One wonders what Ba will have to say then.
