The fans and the Spanish press did not welcome the laughs that Hazard shared with his former Chelsea teammates at the end of the UCL semifinals
Belgian Eden Hazard apologized this Thursday on his social networks after the commotion generated by the images in which he was seen laughing with his former teammates from Chelsea after the elimination of his team, Real Madrid, in the semifinals of the Champions (2-0 in the second leg, 3-1 on aggregate), ensuring that it was not his “intention to offend the fans.”
“I have read many opinions about myself, and it was not my intention to offend the Real Madrid fans. It has always been a dream to play for Real Madrid and I came to win. The season is not over and together we will fight in the battle for the League. Hala Madrid! “, The footballer wrote in both English and Spanish on Instagram.
Hazard, who has lived through an ordeal of injuries since signing for the Real Madrid in June 2019 from Chelsea, where he spent seven seasons, was a starter in the momentous duel in London, returning to what was his home, but could not show his best version, although, according to data from the UEFA, was the footballer of the white team who traveled the most kilometers during the game: 10.64km.
But the criticism came after the fact, because of what happened after the final whistle. The Belgian shared confidences and laughter with those who were his companions, and some now friends, such as the Spanish Cesar Azpilicueta, his translator when he arrived at the Chelsea, and especially with Kurt Zouma and Edouard Mendy, with whom he laughed out loud.
