LaLiga: Chelsea legend warns Real Madrid’s new signing, Eden Hazard

Chelsea legend, Pat Nevin has issued warning to Real Madrid’s new signing, Eden Hazard.

He warned the Belgium captain that he could face a tough spell at the Spanish La Liga giants because “Sometimes the grass isn’t greener”.

Nevin stated this after Hazard completed his dream move to Santiago Bernabeu for €100million on Friday.

“It may be surprising to a lot of people [but] I’m delighted for him [Hazard],” Nevin told BBC Radio 5 Live on Sunday.

“Absolutely really happy for the guy, he wanted that.

“He’s given seven years to that club and he has been stunning through those seven years.

“His behaviour has been impeccable, he is the most skilful player I think has ever played for Chelsea Football Club.

“Certainly among the very few, three or four greatest players that’s ever played for the football club as well.

“He’s given all those years to it, good luck to him in his next adventure, he deserves it.

“Do you know what, I think most Chelsea fans would feel exactly the same way about it.

“Boy we will miss him and we’ll miss his skills, being able to see them in the Premier League. But you have to live with it and go forward.

“I just like the fact that the good guys now and again are allowed to shine and be special, and I liked his personality as well.

“Well done Eden, I hope you have a good time at Real Madrid.

“I’ll just say one thing: sometimes the grass isn’t greener.

“And I’ll tell you what, Real Madrid might be a tough one for the next few years.”
