Ex-Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger unfolded dramatic comments on his new teammate Eden Hazard following his move to the Spanish capital.
The German international was on Real Madrid’s radar since last season as the Madrid giants were keen on strengthening their defense after the departure of Rafael Varane to Manchester United. Another experienced defender Marcelo also bade farewell to the supporters as he became a free agent after the Champions League final.
Los Blancos landed David Alaba from Bayern Munich last summer and now they have managed to secure the Rudiger deal from Chelsea as he intended to discontinue the journey with London Giants.
What Rudiger actually said about Hazard?
Antonio expressed his experience and interactions with players at Chelsea especially with Eden Hazard that brought up his comments on which he said, “The day he left we were sad, but then I was happy for him, because I knew that Madrid had been his dream since I was a child, he told us. He was a big fan of Zidane.”

How the Madrid fanbase reacting on this matter?
Supporters of Real Madrid around the world showed huge positive responses after the comments on their new defender. Many fans are quoting, “Hazard ball nest season is going to be something else.”
This reactions are clearly reflecting the comments of Eden Hazard during their UCL title celebration at Madrid City as he told the fans that he would give his best next season for the team with higher enthusiasm and greater performance.
Speculations are in favor of Rudiger’s move as football experts already claimed that this would change the shape of the Madrid defense categorically.
Antonio Rudiger followed the footsteps of Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard through his emphatic move from Chelsea with a view to gain experience in the summit of European football with one of the best clubs in the world – Real Madrid.
