Father of Real Madrid goalkeeper Courtois brands Hazard 'unprofessional'

The father of Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has slammed Eden Hazard for his behaviour after their Champions League defeat at Chelsea.

In the immediate aftermath of the defeat there was particular attention on Hazard, with fans suggesting such a lack of respect was particularly galling given how injury-prone Hazard has been since being signed by Los Blancos for 100 million euros.

"Its really not smart for Eden to do that," Thierry Courtois explained on the HLN Sportcast podcast.

"He probably didn't think twice about it, but those images are painful for Real Madrid fans. If you see a player laughing two minutes after being eliminated, I'd say it was unprofessional."
