Chelsea Fans Explain Why They Had An Eden Hazard Banner Vs Liverpool
Chelsea fans confused a lot of people by having an Eden Hazard banner at their game against Liverpool at the weekend but it was just an accident.
The Blues hosted Liverpool at the weekend and it was a surprise to see former Chelsea player Hazard get honoured with a massive banner at Matthew Harding stand, despite moving to Real Madrid this summer.
Now it's been revealed that it was all an accident and the wrong banner had been handed over before the game. The 'We Are The Shed' Twitter account revealed it was all a simple mistake, saying, "Just an error that's all. So much work/effort goes into organising these things & having so many flags it was bound to happen one day! Wasn't ideal but if we can't laugh at ourselves..."
Lol people actually thinking the Hazard flag was used on purpose by the MH Stand. Just an error that's all. So much work/effort goes into organising these things & having so many flags it was bound to happen one day!- WE ARE THE SHED (@WeAre_TheShed) September 22, 2019

The flags you see in the Matthew Harding are the result of the hard work that @onlyapound & his boys do week-in-week-out- WE ARE THE SHED (@WeAre_TheShed) September 22, 2019
It's a lot of effort/organisation, involves getting out of the pub early & also missing the first 10m to pack away
Never take the MH flags for granted
The official CFCUK Fanzine account also backed up the revelation that it was a simple mistake tweeting, "It is the club who inadvertently gave us the wrong banner to display."
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- cfcuk Fanzine (@onlyapound) September 22, 2019
Hazard moved to Stamford Bridge in 2012, just after the team won the Champions League and stayed for seven years before moving to Real for £130 million this summer.
The Belgian scored 110 goals in 352 appearances in all competitions and helped the club to two Premier League titles, two FA Cups and two Europa League successes.
With their transfer ban not allowing them to sign a replacement for the former Lille forward there's no doubt they are missing him, though more of their current issues are in defence.
Which one former player would you let your club have a flag for?
