Watch: Eden Hazard tells off member of staff for not wearing mask properly


We’ve made no secret of our love for former Chelsea forward Eden Hazard in the past.

None of us working at Planet Football support Chelsea, yet we just couldn’t help but fall in love with the way Hazard plays football.

Even after a disappointing debut campaign at Real Madrid, which he himself dubbed “the worst season of my career individually”, our overriding feeling is that we really, really miss him.

But just when we thought we couldn’t love him any more, footage emerged of Hazard sat in the stands while on international duty with Belgium, telling a member of the technical staff to pull up his mask so it covers his nose.

Footballers can be prone to believing in batshit mental conspiracy theories, so we were pleased to see Hazard isn’t an anti-mask weirdo.
