Eden Hazard has been named as the Europa League Player of the Season for the role he played in Chelsea’s Europa League triumph last season.

The winner was announced at the Europa League draw which took place in Monaco on Friday, following on from Thursday’s Champions League draw.

Giroud scored 11 goals in 14 games in the Europa League as he came away as the leading scorer in the tournament, and Chelsea fans believe that Giroud contributed more to our Europa League triumph.

Fans took to social media to protest as Hazard got 340 points while Giroud got 119 points.

One Chelsea fan posted on Twitter: “Smtn is wrong with this Uefa. Giroud was the best player by a mile. Hazard literally played under 6 matches”.

Another Blues fan said: “Once you move to Spain, UEFA becomes nice to you”.

Another said: “Feel sorry for this guy (Giroud), had a top run in Europa league still favoritism prevails”.

Another Chelsea fan didn’t let his love for Hazard blind his judgment as he said: “Yall rob giroud so much …. i love hazard but come on uefa”.

“Greatest injustice to Giroud,” another fan added.
