He continues to say he will miss everyone that was part of his career, and also thanked the clubs he played for. “I also want to thank the clubs I have played for: LOSC, Chelsea and Real Madrid; and thank the RBFA for my Belgian Selection”. He thanked his family and fans, and said “Now is the time to enjoy my loved ones and have new experiences”.

The winger started his career with French club Lille, and helped them to win a domestic double of Ligue 1 and Coupe de France in 2010/2011. He moved to Chelsea in 2012, won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year in 2014/2015 and scored 110 goals across 352 appearances.

He was transferred to Real Madrid in 2019, but only played 54 games, leaving the club at the end of last season. Last December, Hazard had already retired from international soccer after Belgium were eliminated from the 2022 World Cup during the group stage. With the Belgian national team, he made 126 appearances and scored 33 goals, taking part in three World Cups and two European Championships, captaining the team 56 times.
