Eden Hazard’s emotions at the full-time whistle after Chelsea knocked Real Madrid out of the Champions League have caused controversy.
The 30-year-old returned to Stamford Bridge for the first time since his departure in 2019 but it was an unhappy return after Thomas Tuchel’s side won 2-0 on the night, 3-1 on aggregate, to seal their place in the Champions League final later this month.
Hazard was kept quiet all night by the Blues and was taken off in the late stages of the second half.
At full time when Real’s exit was confirmed, Hazard headed over to his former teammates and was caught in extremely happy mood despite defeat.
It caused quite a stir amongst the Spanish media and the wider footballing community as Hazard embraced his return to west London.
