Loftus-Cheek: Chelsea players will respect Hazard choice

Ruben Loftus-Cheek says there'll be no resentment from teammates should Eden Hazard choose to leave Chelsea.

Hazard, wanted by Real Madrid, scored the winning spotkick in their shootout against Eintracht Frankfurt to reach the Europa League final.

"I'm sure everyone here - and us players - would love him to stay and be a Chelsea player until he finishes his career," Loftus-Cheek said.

"But who knows what he's thinking. Over the last seven, eight years he's been fantastic - the trophies he has helped us win.

"Whatever decision he makes we will respect it."
