Eden Hazard will not return to the national team, he does not regret his decision to step aside from the ‘red devils’, as he has confessed in an interview in which he revealed what until the Belgian king called him personally to discuss his situation.
“King Philippe called me, but what we talked about stayed between us. In football you should never say never, but I have many other things to do, such as spending more time with my children, with my family. I don’t see myself going back on my decision on a specific whim“, he told the microphones of the Belgian radio television RTBF.
During the conversation, he also recounted the process of his goodbye, which began to take shape from the end of the 2020 Euro Cup. “I started thinking about it after the Euro Cup. At that time, I had worked a lot, I got injured, I couldn’t play against Italy. That hurt me, but there are more things“, he pointed out in reference to his desire to spend more time with his family, something he learned from his partner Toni Kroos.

Thus, and although he himself pointed out that there have been cases of returns to the national team throughout history, he assures that with him “it will not happen” because he is “100% sure”.
