Belgium captain Eden Hazard spoke to the media after the tribute paid to him by the national team during the match against Austria (1-1) in Brussels on Saturday.
Hazard spoke about his future, but also about his time at Real Madrid.
“It’s true that in the last few days, I’ve read a lot about myself, and a lot of nonsense,” he said in words reported by Mundo Deportivo.
“Going to Racing White Darin Molembeek with my brother? I don’t know if it’s stupidity, we’ll see. I know I’m not giving you the answers you’re hoping for but I honestly don’t have them yet.
“Having said that, I assure you that I am still capable of being a professional footballer, my body can take it. I’ve been resting for two or three years, I still have energy,” said the Belgian forward, who a fortnight ago was released by Real Madrid.
Hazard had a contract at the Bernabéu until 2024, but Los Blancos paid him half his annual salary to leave the club a year early.
