- Thibaut Courtois has been called all sort of names following his welcome message to Hazard
- The Real Madrid shot-stopper was verbally attacked by Chelsea fans on social media
- Hazard ended his seven-year romance with Chelsea to join Real Madrid for a reported fee of £130m
Thibaut Courtois has come under attack from Chelsea fans after sending a message on social media to tell Eden Hazard he had joined "the best club in the world".
This message got the Blues faithfuls fuming at the Belgian shot-stopper as he was called all sort of names.
Hazard left Stamford Bridge after seven years then joined Los Blancos for a massive £130million switch to become Zinedine Zidane's next Galactico.
Then Courtois told Hazard in Spanish "welcome to the best club in the world," which did not go down well with Chelsea fans as they went on Twitter to vent their anger.
Courtois unceremoniously left the Blues to Madrid in 2018 but that came after he refused to resume pre-season training, before forcing a move out the west London side.

One supporter, Roxy H, said: "You know, I want Eden to do well at Madrid, but then I remember Courtois is there and I HATE him and want him to fail miserably, but in order for Eden to do well Courtois has to do well too?"
Steven Cheeseman posted: "I hope as a Blue, Real Madrid sell that lanky overated lizard Courtois so he can only play with Hazard for the national side"
Another Bridge fan, Leesharn Rose, slammed Courtios, tweeting: "@thibautcourtois LEARN HOW TO LEAVE A CLUB RESPECTFULLY"
Hazard signed a five-year deal at the Bernabeu and will wear Cristiano Ronaldo's number seven shirt.
Courtois has hailed the signing of his fellow countryman Hazard.
He said: "For Madrid it's going to be fantastic. I think he is going to make the difference and I hope we can win many titles next season."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Eden Hazard was ranked among Chelsea's all time best players.
According to a survey by Ranker, Frank Lampard leads the way, with Didier Drogba and John Terry completing the top three podium.
