Eden Hazard: 'I Think This Is Goodbye'

Eden Hazard appears to have played his final game for Chelsea after admitting "I think it is goodbye" following the Europa League final win over Arsenal in Baku.

The Belgian scored twice and set up another as Chelsea won 4-1, ending the season with the first trophy of Maurizio Sarri's 20-year managerial career.

And when brought in for a post-match interview with BT Sport, Hazard stated that a decision on his future would be made in the coming days - though he made his mind up two weeks ago.

But when the interviewee followed up and asked for a clearer answer regarding his future, the former Lille man opened up with his most honest admission yet.

In seven seasons and exactly 352 games as a Chelsea player, Hazard scored 110 goals and contributed further with 92 assists.

He signs off with two Premier League titles, two Europa Leagues, one FA Cup and one EFL Cup.
