Eden Hazard in danger of losing 'legend' status at Chelsea as fans blame him for Real Madrid draw
Eden Hazard could have his 'legend' status at Chelsea revoked, after fans decided the forward was to blame for their latest meeting with Real Madrid.
Even with recent wins over Leeds United and Leicester City, things haven't exactly gone well for Chelsea in the Premier League this season.
Despite the quite ridiculous amount of money they've spent, the Blues are down in 10th in the league, and could struggle to qualify for Europe next season.
However, that won't be a problem if they manage to win the Champions League, with one fan coming up with a theory as to why they'll win, after they defeated Borussia Dortmund in the last 16.
On Friday morning, the 2021 champions found out that they'd be facing Real Madrid in the quarter finals, for the second year in-a-row.
They also met Los Blancos when they won the title the previous year, beating the Spanish giants in the semi finals, before beating Manchester City in the final.
That makes it the third year on the trot that they'll be facing each other, all since Hazard left west London, but his desires to see his old team is now being blamed on the meetings.
"Chelsea and especially Chelsea fans will always be special to me," he wrote on his social media after leaving, "And next season I will look for your results first.
"I hope that we are drawn against each other in the Champions League next season, and every season so we can meet again."</

His first season after leaving for the Bernabeu is the only one in which his old side have not faced his current one, but he shouldn't worry too much.
Chelsea have actually only lost once in their previous 14 meetings with Carlo Ancelotti's team, although it was quite an important one.
They were bettered in the first leg of last year's quarter final, but looked like they would complete a comeback when they got Real back to west London.
However, a late Rodrygo goal took things to extra time, only for Karim Benzema to continue his incredible form in the tournament and take the Spanish champions through.
Hazard won't have to worry about coming up against his former side, with his future as a Real player all but over just four years into his move.
Ancelotti even confirmed that the pair don't talk earlier this week, and doesn't seem to have any interest in picking the Belgian any time soon.
