Real Madrid was yesterday knocked out of the Champions League by West London side, Chelsea after succumbing to a 2-0 defeat in the 2nd leg of the semi-finals of the European competition.
The loss wasn’t the talk on social media, particularly Twitter, but the manner in which former Chelsea player, Eden Hazard was seen interacting with the Chelsea players after their loss, is what sparked rage on social media.
Eden Hazard might have left Chelsea in 2019 to seek European glory with Real Madrid but judging from his demeanour at the end of their tie at Stamford Bridge, he still has some blue blood in him.
After Chelsea claimed a 2-0 win on the night, and a 3-1 win on aggregate, to qualify for the Champions League final, all of Madrid’s players were clearly upset but not Eden Hazard.
Hazard, who spent seven years at Chelsea, was obviously happy to see his old teammates, including Caesar Azpilicueta and Kurt Zouma, with whom he shared a laugh.
While Chelsea fans were pleased to see their former favourite catching up with old friends, Madrid fans were less accommodating, expressing their displeasure over the Belgian’s apparent lack of irritation at Los Blancos’ exit.
They were particularly upset because his big-money move from Chelsea has been a flop since joining the Spanish side.
He wasn’t his blistering self either on Wednesday, as Chelsea progressed to their second Champions League Final in nine years.
Eden Hazard was happy for Chelsea 💙
