The weight of Belgian footballer Eden Hazard has been criticized by Real Madrid fans, as he started the pre-season with a big belly.

Former Barcelona midfielder, Cesc Fabregas, doesn’t understand fans sometimes.

He is surprised to see so many of them criticizing Real Madrid’s new signing, Eden Hazard.

The two played together from 2014 to 2019 in English Premier League side Chelsea.

“They talk a lot about his weight. It seems like people haven’t seen the Premier League for the last seven years,” Fabregas told Sport.

“Maybe in pre-season things are a bit harder but you have to give him time, not just for his physical state but because he has to adapt to a new philosophy, another type of play, other pressures.”

“Madrid and Barca have pressures of all kinds and I think he didn’t even know,” he continued.

“I’m sure Eden will do well because he’s a crack and I have no doubts about him.”
