Hazard got his opportunity to face Chelsea for the first time since his departure, and the deadlock was certainly a reasonable result, as both sets of players embraced at the final whistle. Antonio Rudiger embraced Hazard and another former player Thibaut Courtois.
Fans, on the other hand, dislike Courtois after he pushed through a move to Real in the summer of 2018, even though he had only one year left on his deal. Another is that he has openly encouraged Hazard to visit him in Madrid and has made some hurtful remarks about Chelsea.
The goalkeeper said that the level at Real Madrid is higher than at Chelsea, that the Bernabeu was twice as big as Stamford Bridge. "If you look forward, you only see a wall of people, while at Stamford Bridge you can still see the sky or the hotel behind the grandstand," Courtois added.
Tuchel moved around the pitch as the Chelsea players were departing, delivering supportive words and swift hugs. Courtois, however, extended his hand to Antonio Rudiger, Hakim Ziyech, and Jorginho as the German coach approached them.Tuchel ignored it and didn't even seem to consider the goalkeeper's intent, much to the delight of Chelsea fans watching from home.
