Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard has questioned why Leandro Trossard was dropped consecutively in their world cup campaign in Qatar for him.
Eden Hazard announced his retirement from international football after Belgium's abysmal display at the world cup, which was hosted in Qatar. The European country failed to make the knockout rounds for the first time in eight years.
The Real Madrid forward who struggled with playing time at the Bernabéu was picked ahead of Brighton Star Leandro Trossard in their first two qualifying match at the world cup.
Although Leandro Trossard was provided an opportunity in their last group match against Croatia, but the former Chelsea forward thinks that he was supposed to have more playing time.
The Brighton Star was having the best moment of his career at Brighton before the world cup tournament, scoring seven goals in 14 Premier League matches, and was tipped to replace aging Eden Hazard in the Belgium national team.
Hazard asked if he felt hurt or angry when people suggested that his time with Belgium is coming to an end, Hazard told RTBF; Not at all.
We were discussing on my potential replacement Leandro Trossard because he was having a good season in the league.
' Sometimes I also wonder why he's not given enough time to showcase the talent he has'. It's normal for young talents to take the place of older ones, when I was 16 in Lille I took the place of a player
