World Cup Flop Eden Hazard Asks Google To Remove Negative References To His Shoddy Performance Against Argentina

By Chris Wright

Brazil Soccer WCup Argentina Belgium

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has requested that Google removed all references and ratings of his underwhelming performance for Belgium against Argentina in the quarter-finals of the World Cup under the European Union’s “right to be forgotten” ruling.

Belgium lost the game 0-1 with Hazard largely criticised for failing to make any kind of impact despite his billing as one of the tournament’s top stars.

According to Belgian paper Lavenir,  Hazard is attempting to have wiped any negative comments made about him by the media, any reference to him as a “flop” and as any post-match rating for the Argentina fixture that scored him lower than 4/10.

Modern football being the cess-pit of commercialism that it is, apparently Hazard’s management team are concerned that the adverse press may effect the Chelsea forward’s market value as well as impact on future shirt sales and his ability to negotiate with his sponsors.

*Sigh*

Let’s all white-wash history for commercial gain!

Call us old-fashioned, but shouldn’t the responsibility of being remembered in a positive light lie solely with the individual?

    So what Monsewer Hazard really wants from Google is the “right to be [i]partially[/i] forgotten”?
    Forgetting about lil’ Eden would be easy enough – just wipe the whole lot off. But he’d like the occasional good bit to be stored and available for recall just in case one day his grandchildren say “So what exactly [i]did[/] you do in the World Cup in Brazil, granpapa? Were you there?”

    This is like the quotes printed on the back of paperbacks – “Amazing!” or “Nailbighting!”. Of course the full original reviews were probably “It’s amazing that a publisher ever considered this might sell.” and “The thought that this author might produce a second book has me nailbighting with fear.”

    I think I’d like to forget most of Eden Hazard and just remember a few brief letters – “End”.

    @Sam — Walter must be a ManU(re), Arsenal, Liverpoo, or Tootenham fan.

    But as for my man Hazard….well, I know you weren’t lighting it up at the WC, but I don’t give a fock and neither should you. Keep The Blue Flag Flying High my man. It’s what you do for Chelsea that matters. Blame it all on Tim Howard and move on….

  6. Fat Nakago says:

    And yes,I know Tim Howard doesn’t play for Les Albicelestes….but Hazard was already still traumatized by Howard by the time their tilt teed off.

    For the record:
    EDEN HAZARD WAS A COMPLETE FLOP AT THE WORLD CUP.
    You’ve been foiled, Tiny E. PIES 4EVEH!
