Thomas Tuchel's men initially knocked out Hazard's Real Madrid in the semi-finals before carting home the prestigious trophy in the final.

But despite spending an illustrious seven-year career at Stamford Bridge, Hazard has said he did not celebrate his former club's continental glory.

The Belgian, who has endured a tumultuous spell at Santiago Bernabeu insisted his focus is on helping Real win trophies including the Champions League.

"Of course not, I’m a Real Madrid player so I am not happy," Metro UK quoted Hazard, who won two Premier League titles with the Blues saying.
"I am just happy for a couple of friends in the team, but I hope next season it’s for Real Madrid," he added.

The forward's sentiments came only a few weeks after he landed himself in trouble with the Real support base after he was caught on camera laughing shortly after Chelsea dumped the Spanish side from the competition.
