Eden Hazard has apologised to Real Madrid supporters after he was seen laughing with Chelsea players immediately after his side’s UEFA Champions League semi-final exit on Wednesday.

The Belgium international, who spent seven seasons at Stamford Bridge before joining Real Madrid in 2019, was heavily criticised for sharing a joke with some of his former colleagues.

It came after another ineffective performance from Hazard, who has struggled with injuries in his two seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu and has been linked with a move away.

A number of former Real Madrid players have taken aim at Hazard for his actions at full-time.

Fernando Morientes called for the 30-year-old to say “sorry” to the club’s fanbase.

And Hazard took to social media on Thursday to do exactly that in a short statement.

‘I am sorry. I have read lots of opinions about me 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 here to win. The season is not over and together we must battle for La Liga! Hala Madrid!’

Hazard won two Premier League titles, two Europa Leagues, the EFL Cup, and the FA Cup during his time with Chelsea.
