Eden Hazard admits he has discovered that Real Madrid fans are far more invested than supporters.
The 28-year-old Belgium ahead, moved to Real for a reported from Chelsea #130m in the summer after seven years in Stamford Bridge.
“I believe here the fans are really lovers,” stated Hazard, before Wednesday’s Champions League group game against Paris Saint-Germain.
“In England there aren’t so many lovers, folks there like soccer and everyone, young people, adults, teenagers, are really interested in their soccer, but they are not as fanatical in their groups.
“In the time that I was in Chelsea and we dropped, we were disappointed as were the lovers, but I felt it was a disaster.
“When you’re at Real Madrid, even if it is my very first year, speaking about the fans, then they always expect you to win the Champions League,” he continued.
“This is why I think there’s so much expectation placed with this contest and that is why the club has made it more than every other team.”
Hazard patiently waited to get a move away from Chelsea – that he said it could be time for you to move on following the 2018 World Cup – but that didn’t stop him speaking of his desire while still a Blue to play Real.
“When I had been at Chelsea, I already knew that my dream was to play for [Real Madrid] someday,” he said.
“I had not expected to play with seven years at Chelsea, but in the end everything went well and I had the occasion to win something every year. I think that is why I remained there as long.”
