Hazard Trolled For ‘Miss of The Season’ Against Galatasaray

Eden Hazard’s shocking miss in the UEFA Champion League against Galatasaray on Tuesday night elicited online trolls from football fans across the world.

The former Chelsea man went round the hosts’ keeper Fernando Muslera and with an empty net at his sight, the Real Madrid pulled the unthinkable rattling the crossbar much to the shock of his teammates and coach Zinedine Zidane but to Galatasaray’s delight.

Madrid went on to win the game courtesy of a Toni Kroos goal and in the process eased pressure, albeit for now for under-fire Zidane who is on the spot after an underwhelming start to the 2019/20 campaign both in the league and in Europe. The win was Madrid’s first in Europe this campaign after flopping in the opening two games.

The Frenchman had admitted before the game that reports linking former Madrid boss Jose Mourinho with his job were unsettling him but vowed to work hard to turn the team’s fortunes around.

“In football, people forget what you’ve done in the past. The important thing is present…I’m not going to say it doesn’t bother me what is being said about other coaches because it does. But what I have to do as a coach is to give everything, get the players to do the same, to give everything – and that’s all I can do. It’s a great game to play in, a great stadium, Champions League…we know what the situation is and we’re going to try and win,” he stated

Despite the win, Hazard’s miss remained the main talking point from the game with many trolling Madrid’s record signing.
