Chelsea fans have shown their admiration for the image of Mason Mount and Eden Hazard greeting each other after the Champions League clash at Madrid.
Mason Mount and Eden Hazard exchanged greetings as the Chelsea legend shook hands with the youngster. The Blues fans could not hide their excitement at this image as a ‘torch-passing’ moment took place!
Eden Hazard is arguably Chelsea’s best player of the last decade, with the Belgian instrumental in helping the Blues win multiple league titles and other domestic honors as well as one Europa League title.
