Eden Hazard responds to Real Madrid chants from West Ham United fans

Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard was on the scoresheet again as he helped Chelsea register a 2-0 win over London rivals West Ham United amid Real Madrid links.

And with rumours of a move to Madrid growing stronger, the Belgian was subjected to Real Madrid chants from the West Ham fans at the Stamford Bridge. The Hammers fans reportedly sang “he’s off to Madrid” to taunt their Chelsea counterparts.

When quizzed in the post-match interview about the chants, Hazard termed them ‘wrong’. However, he did not rule out the move, saying he is focused on Chelsea ‘until the end of season’.

“They’re wrong,” Hazard told Sky Sports.

“Now I’m just focused on Chelsea until the end of season. I want to finish in the top four and do well in the Europa League, and then we’ll see.”

Hazard scored twice, in the 24th and the 90th minute, to seal a 2-0 win for Chelsea, who have now moved up to third in the Premier League table. However, the Blues have played one extra match as compared to their top-four rivals – Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Manchester United.
