The Belgian, who arrived from Chelsea in a big-money move last year, saw his progress at Santiago Bernabeu marred by injuries. As a result, he could only muster just over 1,000 minutes of action in La Liga. He has featured in only three games in the new season as well, thus forcing Zinedine Zidane to rely on other options.
Since signing for Real Madrid last summer, Eden Hazard has never played more than four games in a row for the club due to injuries. So sad to see. Eden Hazard has now suffered more injuries at Real Madrid in two years than he did at Chelsea in seven years… he literally can’t catch a break.
Despite this, Belgium manager Roberto Martinez backed him last month to regain his best form and play at the European Championships next summer.
“I just can see it, I think 2021 is going to be a wonderful year for Eden Hazard and for all the Red Devils fans,” Martinez told reporters.”He is in good spirits and is looking forward to getting back as quick as he can to play football again.
“I have got no doubt that in 2021 we are going to see the best version of Eden Hazard.”
