Lad Holds Sign Up Asking For Hazard's Shirt For 90 Minutes, Hazard Responds
Eden Hazard produced a moment of class after Chelsea's 4-0 win over Brighton on Saturday afternoon.
After a determined young Brighton & Hove Albion supporter held a sign up saying 'can I please have your shirt' for the entire 90 minutes, the Belgian winger responded brilliantly.
Hazard walked towards the kid after full-time and handed him his Man of the Match jersey.
The Chelsea winger has well and truly made this young lad's day with a gesture he will never forget. Well played, Eden.
Here's footage of the moment via Chelsea TV:
Chelsea fans were delighted last week after Hazard told a fan that he would 'never leave Chelsea' during Thursday night's NBA London game between Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers.
The 27-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent months, but the man himself has responded to rumours with the answer every Chelsea fan wanted to hear.
As you can see in the footage below, a fan told Hazard to not leave Stamford Bridge and the Belgian responded perfectly.

These revelations come just weeks after Hazard's father revealed that the Belgian winger turned down a contract extension at Chelsea.
Hazard has arguably been the Blues' best player since his arrival in the Premier League five years ago, while also establishing himself as probably the most influential player in the English top flight during the same period.
Chelsea - what would've been without the millions and millions:
However, the Belgian apparently didn't see his long term future in London, with a long rumoured move to Real Madrid potentially closer than a lot of Blues fans would care for.
But his actions at the NBA, along with an exclusive from The Mirror suggest he will remain with Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.
In the interview Hazard confirms that he will sign a new deal at Chelsea and commit his future to the club.
When asked if he will sign a contract at the Blues, he responded "Yes," then revealed that goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will also pen a new deal.
