Eden Hazard has just been speaking following Chelsea’s impressive 2-0 win over West Ham, and when asked about the chants from the away fans that claimed he’s “off to Madrid”, the Belgian came out with a surprisingly strong answer.
“They’re wrong”, he told Geoff Shreeves. “I am focused on Chelsea”.
Of course he’s not going to say anything different, but it was a surprisingly forceful denial from him. It’s a shame anyway, we all just want to focus on the quality he’s bringing to the team right now, not worry about the future. Maybe this is the sign we were looking for?
Listen, it’s not much to cling onto, but we’ll take it right now. When he’s playing like that, any hint that he might be staying is all we ask for.
