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