In an interview with RTBF, Eden Hazard was looking back at his now finished international career. Yet while looking back, he also appeared excited by what was to come from the next generation. The Real Madrid midfielder and former Red Devils captain said ‘We had a super generation, very slowly it will start to die out. But I’m 100% sure that the new generation will perhaps be even better’.
Hazard retired from international football after the disappointing World Cup in Qatar at the end of 2022. Hazard was joined in international retirement by former Tottenham and current Antwerp central defender Toby Alderweireld. Last week the 34-year-old released a video via social media to officially end his time with the Belgian national team. Alderweireld made an impressive 127 appearances for the Red Devils, scoring five goals.
New head coach of the Red Devils, Domenico Tedesco will announce his first squad on the 17th of March, with many interested to see which of this new generation that Hazard talked about will be included.
