Eden Hazard Opens Up on Retirement: “I Was No Longer Playing

Former Real Madrid star Eden Hazard, who retired from professional football a month ago, has been candid about his feelings post-retirement, emphasizing that he does not miss playing the sport. The Belgian forward, who remains the most expensive player in Real Madrid’s history, parted ways with the club a year earlier than planned in the summer, ending a challenging period at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Hazard’s remarks came during an interview with TNT Sports, as reported by Diario AS. When asked about his current life, he responded, “It’s perfect. I enjoy life and family with my children. I can do what I want, and it’s a perfect life. The decision was simple. In life, you can’t explain everything. I’m at peace with myself. Now I’m happy. I have so many things to do outside of football that I was able to make a calm decision.”

Hazard elaborated on his decision, revealing that he was no longer finding enjoyment in his job. He stated, “I still watch football on TV when I can. I also do other things, but at the moment, I don’t miss playing football. Let’s see in a few months. I had always said that I would stop playing as soon as I stopped having fun on the field. I didn’t want to go anywhere else for money. It was the best solution. I no longer enjoyed training… and I was no longer playing.”

Hazard’s sentiments shed light on the pressures and challenges faced by modern footballers, especially those in the upper echelons of the sport. The constant public scrutiny, the demands of being away from home for extended periods, and the intense focus on their every move can lead to disillusionment even for players who have achieved considerable success in their careers.
