Eden Hazard has admitted that he didn’t celebrate Chelsea’s Champions League win and is keen to see Los Blancos reclaim the trophy from his former club next season.
The Blues have beating Premier League champions Manchester City 1-0 in Porto on Saturday night to win football’s biggest club competition for the second time.
Thomas Tuchel’s men are knocked out Hazard’s Real Madrid in the semi-finals before winning a tight final and denying Manchester City their first Champions League trophy.
Despite spent seven season at Stamford Bridge before joining Real Madrid in 2019, Hazard admitted that he did not celebrate the club’s triumph as his focus is purely on bringing trophies back to the Bernabeu.
‘Of course not, I’m a Real Madrid player so I am not happy,’said Hazard, who won two Premier League titles with Chelsea.
‘I am just happy for a couple of friends in the team, but I hope next season it’s for Real Madrid.’
Hazard, also provided an provided an update on his future amid Real Madrid exit and Chelsea return links.
The 30-year-old playmaker has been struggled for Los Blancos since his more than £100million move from Chelsea in 2019, missing no fewer than 59 games through injury so far.
Hazard has managed just 30 La Liga appearances, scoring only four goals to date, and those poor fitness and goal records have led to talk of him being sold ahead of next season.
Talk of a possible Chelsea return has followed, but it seems Hazard is hell-bent on proving himself at Real Madrid despite his struggles so far.
‘I don’t see myself leaving Real Madrid right away,’ Hazard said in a Belgium press conference.
‘My first two years weren’t great due to injuries. When I’m fit, I can do great things for the clubs.
‘Now I want to think about the European Championship first. Then I will give everything for Real.’
