‘My debut season at Madrid has been bad’ – Hazard

‘My debut season at Madrid has been bad’

  • The Belgian forward has admitted that his first season at Madrid has been bad
  • The 29-year old made a ‘dream move’ from Chelsea last summer
  • The forward is currently recuperating from an ankle injury that ruled him out of season

‘My first season in Madrid has been bad, but it’s not all bad. It’s a season of adaptation. I will be judged on my second season…’

Eden Hazard joined Los Blancos last summer from Chelsea for £100m in what looked like a dream move for both the Belgian as well as Madrid FC.

However, the debut season has left little to be admired at the Bernabeu.

Recurring injuries and loss of form and fitness made many question the decision of signing the 29-year old who had led Chelsea to Europa League success.

Hazard arrived out of shape and carrying a lot of extra weight

Hazard has only managed one goal and five assists from 15 appearances for Real Madrid in all competitions.

The forward is however hopeful that he will have an impact in his second season at the club.

Speaking to Belgian media outlet Radio Télévision Belge de la Communauté Française (RTBF), the forward said that he is looking forward to next season:

My first season at Madrid is bad …It is an adaptation season. I will be judged in the second. It is up to me to be in good shape next season. The group (team) is good…I still have four years (in my) of contract, I hope be in good shape.

About Coronavirus

Hazard admitted to being worried about the pandemic and urged everyone to be careful.

“Am not saying I can’t catch it, but I am inside the house, nobody is coming out”.

The Belgian is in isolation in his Madrid home as the country battles with the coronavirus outbreak.

Spain currently has a death toll of over 3000 people from the virus with nearly 50,000 cases
