Eden Hazard appeared to aim a dig at the Chelsea fans as he hailed Real Madrid supporters in Spain.

The Belgium international joined Real from Chelsea this summer.

Speaking to UEFA media, Hazard said: “I think that here the fans are really fans. In England there are not so many fans, people there like football and everyone, young people, adults, teenagers, are really interested in their football, but they are not so fanatical about their teams.

“At the time I was in Chelsea and we lost, we were disappointed as were the fans, but I never felt it was a disaster. It is different in Spain. Football is everything to them and it is up to the players to give everything.”
