Hazard can win Ballon d’Or at Real Madrid
According to the head coach of Belgium, Roberto Martinez, Eden Hazard, can win the “Ballon d’Or at Real Madrid. Hazard at the beginning of the 2019-20 season swapped Chelsea for Madrid in a blockbuster €100 million (£89 million/$112 million) transfer, but the Belgium star has struggled at the Santiago Bernabeu. Injuries and fitness problems limited Hazard to just 15 appearances in the Spanish capital. Where the striker had not played since February 22 due to an ankle fracture before the coronavirus pandemic. But team boss Martinez is expecting big things from Eden. “He can completely win Ballon d’Or with Real Madrid, no doubt,” Martinez told reporters. “Sometimes it takes a hard start in your new club to give away everything you have inside and understand what it means to perform in a club as big as Real Madrid.
He will bring a lot of success
“Eden doesn’t miss the game, he lost 18 matches with Chelsea in eight years, and this has been indirect. The match that was injured against PSG shows Eden with great joy in his football with a great connection with his teammates. “I think Real Madrid fans are sure that he will bring a lot of success.” The first last week, for the first time in two months, returned to their Valdebebas base, with most major sports around the world suspended due to the Covid-19 crisis. Players held separate sessions before work in groups on Monday as La Liga clubs took a step towards resuming their standard schemes, with the league hoping to restart in June. Roberto added: “He is pleased. The footballer Hazard, in a moment of great delight, he is very comfortable.
“All the moves have been taken in great detail, and I would have no problem completing the season with Real Madrid and going to the European Championship. I see him pleased and looking forward to some joy this season.” Roberto himself has been in the headlines recently, with the Spanish coach extending his contract with Belgium until the end of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
