WOW! Chelsea ace Hazard hit super hat-trick 'while drunk'

Chelsea ace Eden Hazard once allegedly scored a hat-trick while drunk!

That's the claim of former Lille teammate Rio Mavuba.

He allegedly netted a hat-trick while “still drunk" from the night before, during his last game for Lille.

Lille went on to beat Nancy 4-1 in the final match of that season, after Hazard had gone out for some drinks with team-mates.

Mavuba said: “We were certain to finish third and we were facing Nancy the following day.

"It was Eden 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, we told ourselves that this guy was the real deal."
