Eden Hazard helps out Chelsea fan with amnesia by sending him DVD

Eden Hazard has shown his support for a fan.

While his performances on the pitch this season have been somewhat less than stellar, it's reassuring to know that Eden Hazard is definitely pulling his weight off it.

The Belgian forward has gone out of his way to help a Chelsea who is suffering from amnesia after being attacked in the street in south London last year.

Vladimir Howard suffered a fractured cheekbone and is now unable to remember the last year of his life after being knocked unconscious during the assault.

According to the Mirror, Vladimir had never missed a Chelsea home game before the attack but is now unable to recall his beloved side's 2014-15 Premier League title win.

In a bid to recover some of his memory, the 36-year-old carpenter began watching match footage and goals on YouTube.

However, after hearing of his plight, Hazard stepped in and sent Vlad a signed DVD of the Blues' victorious 2014-15 campaign, along with a note that read: "Vladimir, to jog your memory! Get well soon."

The DVD was well received, with Vlad clearly taken aback by Hazard's humble gesture.

"This is really going to help. Watching on YouTube has been helping me remember but this is much, much better,' he said. "It's is nice of Eden to think of me. From now in he is my top man.

"I love Chelsea and because the club is a big part of my life I'm sure this will trigger the memories."

We know it's easy to scoff (and there's a really obvious joke about not sending him a copy of Chelsea's 2015-16 highlights in there too) but you've got to tip your hat to Hazard here.
