Hazard returned to Stamford Bridge for the first time since his £90m move in 2019. However, his reunion went down badly as he was seen smiling and laughing with his former colleagues Kurt Zouma and Edouard Mendy at full-time.
Hazard has since taken to Instagram to issue an apology, saying it wasn’t his ‘intention to offend Real Madrid fans’ and that it is a ‘dream’ to play for the club.
“I am sorry. I have read a lot of opinions about me today and it wasn’t my intention to offend 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 now battle for La Liga. Hala Madrid!”
Hazard has endured a miserable spell since joining Madrid from Chelsea in 2019 – with just 755 minutes of Champions League football this season.
