The banner of former Chelsea star Eden Hazard was unfurled at Matthew Harding Stand ahead of the game against Liverpool on Sunday, and it was one that surprised many knowing that the Belgian left Chelsea at the end of the season to play for Real Madrid.
A large banner of Eden Hazard was on display at the Bridge on Sunday, and Chelsea fans were surprised as to why, and many took to social media to question the reason for the banner.
It has now been revealed by Chelsea fan page We Are The Shed, that it was an error made by the club.
“People actually thinking the Hazard flag was used on purpose by the Matthew Harding stand. Just an error that’s all,” Chelsea fan page We Are The Shed explained.
“So much work/effort goes into organising these things and having so many flags it was bound to happen one day! Wasn’t ideal but if we can’t laugh at ourselves.”
Another Chelsea fan page CFCUK Fanzine also confirmed it was a horrible mistake: “Was embarrassing I agree but it is the club who inadvertently gave us the wrong banner to display.
“Too complicated to go into how the procedure works but by the time we realised the wrong banner was going out it was too late to stop it – it won’t happen again.”
Meanwhile, Christian Pulisic who joined the club during the summer from Borussia Dortmund has revealed that he’s no replacement for the departed Belgian.
Pulisic said: “I have heard people say that but it is not how I look at it. Hazard was a club legend and he did amazing things here and he is an unbelievable player, but I am coming here as a known player and I am going to show everyone what I can do and play the best I can, for myself and for the club, and that is all I can do.”
