“My first season in Madrid is bad, but not everything is bad,” Hazard told reporters. “This is the season of adaptation. I will be judged in the second. Next year I will be in good shape.
This season in Madrid was bad
Eden Hazard knows that he struggled in his first campaign at Real Madrid, but says his success in the Spanish capital needs to be analyzed next season. The Belgian International moved from Chelsea to Madrid in the summer for a fee of €100 million (£88m/$112m) but hardly impressed the Bernabeu due to stubborn injury. Eden only managed one goal and five assists from 15 appearances in all competitions and admitted that he was not in the best case. But the 29-year-old player feels that he will be ready to influence in the second season, and his success can then be decided. “My first season in Madrid is bad, but not everything is bad,” Hazard told reporters. “This is the season of adaptation. I will be judged in the second. Next year I will be in good shape.
Eden Hazard is in self-isolation
“The group is good, and I met new people. For me, it is a great experience. I have four more years of the contract, and I hope to be in good shape.” Eden is isolated at his home in Madrid – like the rest of the Spanish population – as the country is struggling with an outbreak of coronavirus. Currently, 3,647 people have died from Covid-19 in Spain, and a total of almost 50,000 such cases have been reported. Hazard admitted that he was concerned about the pandemic – in particular, the health of addicted people – and urged everyone to be careful. “I’m not saying that I can’t catch him, but I’m inside the house, nobody comes, we don’t see anyone,” he said. “I’m a little scared, like everyone else, but I especially need to be careful not to pass it on to others, if I understand this, this is the most delicate.
Hazard worried about weaker people
“We need to take care of ourselves. I’m worried about weaker people who have more problems, yes.” The coronavirus crisis forced the suspension of Euro 2020, and the tournament suspended until June 2021. Hazard testified that he would be ready to play if the competition began in June, despite the current ankle injury. He also understood the fans’ disappointment at the postponement of Euro 2020 but insisted that this be done. – I planned to play at Euro 2020. We all will have another year in 2021, which is a shame, but my ankle will allow me to return to be in shape,” Eden said. – I think it’s difficult for the fans because they want to see the international tournament every summer, for them, it’s a shame.
“But I also think that there are priorities in life that make us cancel. We, like everyone else, will wait until next year.”
