Eden Hazard tells Real Madrid fans after Chelsea behaviour: I'm sorry

Real Madrid attacker Eden Hazard has apologised for his behaviour after their Champions League defeat at former club Chelsea.

The Belgian, who was returning to his former home at Stamford Bridge, rubbed a lot of Los Blancos supporters up the wrong way by joking with Kurt Zouma, with many believing that his behaviour was inappropriate for the time. Hazard, though, has since apologised.

"I'm sorry," Hazard posted to social media. "I've 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 now battle for LaLiga [Santander]. Hala Madrid!"
