LE SCAN SPORT – Eden Hazard, young retiree and present in Calais on Wednesday for a charity match organized by the Variétés Club de France, received a surprising call before the start of the meeting, that of the Head of State Emmanuel Macron.

Now retired, Eden Hazard was the main attraction of the last match of the Variétés club de France. This meeting was organized for the benefit of the operation “yellow pieces» and saw some other big names in the football world come together, such as Robert Pirès and Mathieu Debuchy. This event was marked by a special scene before the start of the match: Hazard responded to a call from the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron.

The exchange between the two men was carried out by the journalist Jacques Vendroux, one of the initiators in 1971 of this Variétés Club de France. Macron took the opportunity to tease the young retiree about one of the most painful memories of his career. “Okay, Eden, I’m not going to lie to him. The last time I saw him on the pitch, I really wished he played very badly because it was against France in 2018.launched the Head of State, in reference to the World Cup semi-final lost by the Belgians against France during the 2018 World Cup.

“I still played well that match. We lost but I played well”Hazard replied jokingly. “It was another time and I hope it will have a blast this (Wednesday) evening», added Macron. In October 2021, the President of the Republic also participated in a Variétés Club de France match.

On the pitch, Eden Hazard has yet to lose any of his talent. The former Chelsea star delivered six assists and scored a goal during his team’s big victory (11-2) against “Team Calais”. The 32-year-old notably allowed Wilfrid Mbappé to score after making a backheel. The action also greatly amused Kylian Mbappé who subsequently compared his father to Ronaldo on social networks.
