Eden Hazard claims he can handle heat at Real Madrid after going from ‘baby’ to man at Chelsea


EDEN HAZARD claims he can handle the pressure at Real Madrid – as he is not a “baby” anymore having grown up at Chelsea.

The Belgium international ended his seven-year spell at Stamford Bridge and completed his £150million Los Blancos switch this summer.

Eden Hazard says he is not a ‘boy’ anymore and he will cope with the pressure of Real Madrid fans

Hazard, 28, joined Real Madrid as a two-time Premier League and Europa League winner.

But he knows that every season Los Blancos fans won’t settle for anything less than winning the Champions League.

The former Chelsea star, however, thinks he’s got the experience necessary to succeed at the Bernabeu.

And Hazard says that, having played more than 500 games in his career, he is now a mature player and will be able to cope with the high expectations of Madrid supporters.

He told Jay Shetty: “When you play for Madrid you have to win every year.

“If in a year you do not win the Champions League, the fans are angry but it’s normal at a club like this.

“You need to win and that’s why I’m here.

“What can I contribute? I went to Chelsea seven years ago as a baby but I am more mature now.

“I have played more than 500 games, but I am 28 years old and I still feel young.

“La Liga is completely different from the Premier League but, with experience, you adapt quickly.

“I think that experience is the most important thing.”
