More than 50.000 people gathered at Santiago Bernabéu on a warm evening to receive and give all the support to the new Real Madrid star. Eden Hazard is a Galáctico and the supporters are already dreaming with more success after the nightmare of the past season. It was a dream also for Eden Hazard, who was a Madridista since he was little and finally can join the team.
Some football games this season has less attendance than Hazard’s unveiling. The supporters wanted to see Hazard with the Real Madrid t-shirt for the first time. Although he should wear the iconic number ‘7’, this time the t-shirt didn’t have any number, because Mariano Díaz currently used this ‘7’. Real Madrid prepared a great video with the highlights of his career, and then the president started to talk.
We could see Florentino Pérez very happy and he had some kind words towards the Belgian player: “There was a long time I wanted to say these words: Today Eden Hazard has become a member of Real Madrid. You are where you should be”, Pérez said in the unveiling.
Then it was time for Hazard, who had time to snatch a selfie with all the supporters. Hazard spoke again about the happiness of joining Real Madrid: “It was my dream playing at Real Madrid since I was a little boy, thank you to everyone”.
Then, Hazard attended his first press conference as Real Madrid player and he spoke about Zidane: “Everybody knows Zidane was my idol and the fact that he´s now my coach it was a decisive factor. But I always wanted to play in this club”, Hazard said.
He also commented that the captain Sergio Ramos will kick the penalties, and he joked about getting the number ‘10’: “I asked Modric to give me the number ‘10’, but he refused”. The playmaker also commented that the talks started after the World Cup, but finally it was a reality this year”.
