Eden Hazard is lucky to have his family to support him

As injuries have plagued Eden Hazard since moving from Chelsea to Real Madrid, the Belgian insisted that fitness problems are not the end of the world as he can spend time with his family. Hazard is currently out for four to six weeks after catching a muscle problem in early February and in addition to previous issues, No.7 has missed over 40 games during his time at Real Madrid. “I was lucky that when I got injured and got stuck at home,” he said. “I have my family to get me through. It is not the end of the world for me, because I can spend time with children when you are alone and injured. It can be hard, but I am lucky to have my family to support me.”

“When you’re injured, there’s only so much you can do, you can work to get better faster. But the injuries that I have had to take time to heal. I have to wait, work hard to get better, and when I’m at home, I can enjoy time with my family”. Zinedine Zidane was the man who helped bring Hazard to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, and the Belgian revealed his admiration for the French. “When I was little, I watched the French team the most,” Hazard said. “For me, the players I looked up to were Zinedine Zidane and Thierry Henry. And it’s hard for me to admit because of my relationship with Chelsea, but I liked the Arsenal team at the time.”

“They had players like Robert Pires, Sylvain Wiltord and Patrick Vieira. So I followed mainly the French players that I followed growing up.”
