Hazard waved goodbye to the crowd and hugged a few players as he was substituted in the 89th minute, after the game he said “I took my decision already. I said that two weeks ago.
“Now it’s depending on the club. Both clubs. I’m just waiting…We will know in a couple of days. I think it’s goodbye.
“But in football, you never know. My dream was to play in the Premier League and I did this for seven years for one of the biggest clubs in the world. Maybe it’s time for a new challenge.”
The Belgian said winning the Europa league was all he thought of, “I think for the fans, for the boys, for the manager, for the staff, this is a great trophy to win. My target today was to win the trophy that’s it. That was the only thing in my mind.”
