BREAKING: [Hazard] I’m Overweight Because I Love Drinking Beers

Former Real Madrid midfielder, Eden Hazard has disclosed that his overweight was due to his love for beers.

Hazard confirmed this during a new podcast episode with former Chelsea team-mate John Obi Mikel.

He also noted that he decided to hang his boots because he ‘wasn’t having fun on the pitch’ anymore following his release by the club.

“It was true,’ Hazard said while speaking on the Obi One Podcast. ‘But me, every summer I was putting on four or five kilos because I was thinking you give so much for 10 months, you put your body at the highest level and people kick you, so your time off is your time off.

“But if you look throughout my career, the first month [of the season] is the bit where I was thinking it’s just the beginning, and then from September and October I was flying, because I needed time to put my body and mind in the best way.

“So yes, it’s true, I came back after holidays with five kilos, I knew it.

‘I love everything with family and friends. If you ask me to eat something I’m going to eat. Even if I don’t like it I’m going to eat!

‘As a Belgian guy, we love beers because my country has the best beers in the world, so I’m not telling you I used to drink every day because it’s not true, but sometimes after a good game, one or two is nice.
