Eden Hazard’s football story was a depressing one. Before signing for Real Madrid in 2019, the Belgian was seen as an equal to Neymar, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Years later, his contract was terminated by the Whites and no club is currently approaching him. He also announced his retirement from international football after Belgium’s group stage at the 2022 World Cup.
After leaving Real Madrid, there were first reports that the former Belgium captain might consider retiring from competitive football. But Hazard suggests he’s not ready to retire just yet.
“Honestly, I don’t know yet. After three complicated years, I just want to spend time with my family and go on vacation like everyone else.” , we read a lot of stuff and a lot of nonsense.I don’t know what will happen…I still feel I have the potential to be a professional soccer player but at the same time I’m taking a couple of years off. I still have strength left!”
The former Chelsea player was presented with the honor guard at the King Baudan Stadium on Saturday before Belgium v Austria in a Euro 2024 qualifier. The chances of him playing in European football are minimal, but he could move to MLS this summer. After all, MLS has been a hot topic ever since Lionel Messi moved to Inter Miami. In the end, even if Hazard stopped wearing boots, he would choose what was best for him.
