Chelsea star Eden Hazard, scored a hatrick during his time at Lille, after being drunk from the previous night, his former teammate has revealed.
His former teammate Rio Mavuba says that Hazard netted three in his final game for Lille just hours after returning home from a late night groove.
And after returning home late, the Belgian did not sleep and headed straight to the Stade Metropole and scored a hatrick. Holy Moly!
Incredibly, he scored the hatrick in the opening 30 minutes of the game – and team captain Mavuba says that was when his team-mates knew he was destined for big things.
Mavuba told reporters: “We were certain to finish third and we were facing Nancy the following day. It was Hazard’s last match with Lille and he wanted to organise a little something.
“We decided to go have a little drink. A little drink that dragged on somewhat. The following morning, Eden was still drunk.
“That evening against Nancy, not even with 30 minutes played, Eden had already bagged a hat-trick.
“The guy had not even slept, he drank for the entire night and he put away a hat-trick in 30 minutes.
“We all looked at each other [and] we told ourselves that this guy was the real deal.”
