Fans Blast Hazard Over Poor Performance In Madrid’s Champions League Defeat to Man City

Eden Hazard came under heavy criticism from football fans following his disappointing performance as Real Madrid crashed out of the Champions League at the hands of Manchester City.

The 29-year-old failed to inspire his side to victory at the Etihad as the Citizens won 2-1 to go through to the quarter-final 4-2 on aggregate.

And while it was Raphael Varane that hit the headlines for making the costly mistakes for each goal, the stats show how once again Hazard proved to be ineffective.

According to Squawka, the Belgian international failed to complete a single take-on against City in the two he attemped.

Meanwhile he was successfully dribbled past twice, with stats obtained by Opta showing Hazard completed 27 passes against City, with just 17 of those coming in the opposition’s half.

He touched the ball a mere 37 times – the second-lowest figure of any player that started for Real on Friday night.

And despite winning the LaLiga title in his debut season in Spain, Hazard chipped in with just one goal and seven assists in 22 games in all competitions.

And his performance didn’t sit well with fans, as one tweeted: “Hazard was terrible, felt like watching Sunday league player.”

Another commented: “Eden Hazard is the most useless player of this generation.”

A third added: “We have to sell Hazard immediately. What a useless guy.”

While one simply stated: “Hazard’s signing was a waste of money.”
