Although Zidane sympathizes with Eden Hazard’s injury problems he has sent a stern warning to Hazard by saying Real Madrid doesn’t have time to wait for anybody.
Eden Hazard is slowly becoming a major problem for Zinedine Zidane. The French manager was one of the first who spotted his talent since he played at Lille in Ligue 1.
He was also one of the people who pushed for his transfer from Chelsea to Real Madrid. After more than a year at the club, the Belgian star is an utter disappointment for Zizou due to his never-ending injuries.
He had a major chance to return to a match tonight against Real Valladolid, but a fresh muscular problem prevented him from doing so. Los Blancos did win the match with a solo goal from Vinicius, but it’s clear that they need a talent like Hazard to become more dominant. After the match, the French boss sent his player an ominous message that sounded like a threat.
“Hazard is a little sad because he practiced well throughout the week with his usual speed, just as I know him,” said Zidane via AS after the game.
“This is a minor setback but it’s not his ankle. I’m sure he will return to play with us after the international break. We have to give him time because it’s a very important season. Real Madrid doesn’t have time to wait for anybody, not even Hazard.”
