Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard apologized on Thursday after the controversy sparked by his images laughing with former Chelsea teammates after Real Madrid's elimination from the Champions League in London. “Sorry,” Hazard wrote on his social media, adding: “I have read many opinions about myself today and it was not my intention to offend the Real Madrid fans. It has always been my 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!”, concluded the Belgian winger.

Real Madrid were eliminated in the Champions League on Wednesday by losing 2-0 to Chelsea in the semifinal second leg of the continental tournament. At the end of the match, television images showed the attacker laughing with former teammates from the English team, where he spent seven seasons.

These images aroused the anger of the merengue fans, reflected in the Spanish press, which this Thursday charged against the Belgian. The most expensive signing of Real Madrid (115 million euros, 139 million dollars), arrived in June 2019, has barely played 40 games and scored four goals, weighed down by his continuous injuries.

His display of joy in the middle of a moment of dismay generated that even several media, such as the Marca site, pointed out that his time in the White House has ended and that now the club will try to sell him in the next transfer market, that is why the former Chelsea quickly came out to apologize to see the wave that generated her reaction.

Who backed Hazard was none other than Zinedine Zidane, although the Frenchman did not refer to the player's laughter, but to his performance on the pitch against Chelsea, which did not live up to what was expected: "Eden has to play, he has to regain his confidence. Playing, little by little, you have to get Eden back”. This wink can even serve as a clue to what will happen this weekend when the capital team faces Sevilla in a key duel for La Liga in Spain.
