"After 16 years and more than 700 matches played, I have decided to end my career as a professional footballer." "I was able to realise my dream, I have played and had fun on many pitches around the world." "During my career I was lucky to meet great managers, coaches and teammates — thank you to everyone for these great times, I will miss you all." "I also want to thank the clubs I have played for: LOSC, Chelsea and Real Madrid; and thanks to the RBFA for my Belgian Selection." "A special thank you to my family, my friends, my advisors and the people who have been close to me in good times and bad." "Finally, a huge thank you to you, my fans, who have followed me for all these years and for your encouragement everywhere I have played." "Now is the time to enjoy my loved ones and have new experiences." "See you off the field soon my friends." ❤️ My favourite player 💔 It's so easy for fans these days to get obsessed with stats, and honours and comparing players, but the bigger picture is so much more beautiful. Eden was a guy I had the honour of watching week in week out for 7 years at my club, playing at the highest level. Ridiculous player and an even better person. He gave me so many happy memories. I'll forever be grateful.
