Eden Hazard has responded to the brutal criticism he received after he was spotted laughing with the Chelsea players following Real Madrid's UEFA Champions League exit.
Los Blancos were dumped out of Europe at the semi-final stage after a 2-0 loss on Wednesday night, after the first leg finished 1-1 in Madrid a week ago.
Hazard, in particular, came under fire following the loss at Stamford Bridge, after being pictured laughing with his former teammates, including Kurt Zouma.
Hazard took to social media on Thursday night to issue an apology to the supporters for his post-match actions.
"I am sorry. I have read a lot of opinions about me today and it wasn't my intention to offend Real Madrid fans," the Real star wrote on Instagram.
"It has always been my dream to play for Real Madrid and I came here to win.
"The season is not over and together we must now battle for La Liga. Hala Madrid!"
