Eden Hazard has been officially named Europa League’s Player of the season for the 2018/19 campaign.
This comes after the Belgian led Chelsea to the crown with two goals and two assists throughout the tournament. Interestingly enough, two of those goals and one assist arrived in the final against Arsenal.

But as much as this is truly a big achievement for Hazard, it definitely feels strange for Real Madrid.
Los Blancos are not really used to congratulating their players on their achievements in the Europa League since they are mostly participating on a higher level, in the Champions League.
And this is exactly what some of the fans noticed in the comment section below the tweet.
You can see their rather confused reactions in the collection below as they didn’t really know how to feel about this. Some seemed to think this is a bad sign, some urged the club not to get used to Europa League content and some just felt rather weird about it.

Yeah don’t get used to tweeting about Europa League. You are not Chelsea.
