Eden Hazard has outlined the support of the Real Madrid fans as one of the major differences from his time at Chelsea.
Hazard joined the La Liga giants last summer in a deal that could rise to £130million depending on performances.
After moving to Stamford Bridge from Lille, Hazard enjoyed a hugely successful seven-year spell at Chelsea, winning two Premier League titles and two Europa Leagues.
But the Belgium international admitted that he had to leave west London and fulfill a childhood dream by joining Real.

And he claims the fanatical support of the fans is what sets Real Madrid apart from his time at Chelsea.
“At Chelsea when we lost, we were disappointed, like the fans, but I never felt it was a disaster, it’s different in Spain,” Hazard said last September.
“I think that here the fans are really fans, football is everything to them and they need players to give everything, in England there aren’t so many fans.
“Of course, people there like football and everyone, be that young people, adults or teenagers, are really interested in football, but they aren’t so fanatical about their teams.”
The 29-year-old also admitted that working with childhood idol Zinedine Zidane has been a special experience.
“I feel like a small child, not only because of him but because of the other players here.
“I am learning every day and I am getting to know them, it’s great to work with a coach that you can feel has been a player when you talk to them, I just need to learn from him.”
