Eden Hazard not ready to retire from football after Real Madrid exit: Been resting for two or three years

By India Today Sports Desk: Eden Hazard has said that he isn't thinking about retiring from football just yet, following his exit from Real Madrid following the end of the 2022/23 campaign with the LaLiga giants.

Hazard made a name for himself with Lille and Chelsea, having won multiple titles including the Premier League and the Europa League during his time in England with the Blues. The 32-year-old got himself a move to Los Blancos on the back of some eye-catching performances in the Premier League as Real Madrid made them their costliest player in their history.

However, the Belgian forward failed to make a mark in the Spanish capital as injuries hampered his time with the record Champions League winners. In the four years he spent with Real Madrid, Hazard made 76 appearances and scored seven goals.

Earlier in June, Real Madrid decided to terminate the 32-year-old's contract, making him a free agent. There were suggestions that the Belgian could call time on his career, but he has now suggested that he could continue his career.

Speaking to Belgian broadcaster RTBF, as quoted by 90Min, Hazard said that he is still feels capable of being a professional footballer and joked that he had been resting for the past couple of years.

"I still feel capable of being a professional footballer. I've been resting for two or three years. I still have a bit of energy," said Hazard.

Speaking about his next move, Hazard said he isn't sure about it yet and wants to spend time with his family for now.

"Honestly, I don't know yet," he said. "After three complicated years [2019 to 2022], I just want to spend time with my family, go on vacation, like everyone. We've read a lot of stuff in the last few days, and a lot of nonsense," said Hazard.
