Marcin Bulka’s interview with Foot Truck is the gift that kept giving and giving to those who write about this kind of stuff.
We’ve already covered his comments about Angel Di Maria hating Manchester United and what he had to say about Kylian Mbappé, Neymar Jr., and Marco Verratti. However, his comments weren’t just restricted to Paris Saint-Germain players.
Bulka came up through Chelsea’s youth ranks from 2016-19 before departing for the French capital last summer. While at Stamford Bridge, Bulka trained and interacted with star players like Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois who are both at Real Madrid currently.
During the interview, Bulka was asked about the Belgium internationals and confirmed that Hazard has a bit of an issue when it comes to nutrition.
“He loves hamburgers and pizza, I saw him all the time in pizzerias.”
“He doesn’t care about anything other than football and having a good time.”
“In Chelsea, this was not a problem, but at Real, especially with the recent injury, he probably went a bit overboard with the weight.”
We don’t condone fat-shaming here at PSG Talk but that’s a pretty alarming confession. Hazard has previously admitted to having an issue with his weight but to hear that he’s not disciplined enough to put the pizza down makes you question whether Real Madrid was justified in spending €100 million. This season, Hazard has disappointed and a recent leg injury could cause him to miss the rest of the season.
Bulka wasn’t too kind to fellow goalkeeper Courtois either claiming that the 27-year-old has a big ego.
“If he makes a blunder, he goes to the coach and says stuff like: ‘This defender wasn’t in the right position, he should have done this and that.'”
“He does not want to accept the fact that it was his fault.”
Like Hazard, Courtois is having a disappointing season as well with 22 goals conceded in 29 appearances across all competitions.
Bulka may not get a lot of playing time but he certainly has a lot of opinions.
