Courtois is sure that Eden Hazard will prove that he’s the best
Thibaut Courtois supported Eden Hazard to eventually explode for Real Madrid after his painless, injury run. The Belgian is yet to make an appearance for Madrid this season, having suffered a muscle injury in the same way he came close to returning from an ankle problem. The playmaker has struggled to make a significant impact for the LaLiga giants in his first season since his arrival from Chelsea last year. But partner in the Belgium national team and Real Madrid Thibaut Courtois believes that it is only a matter of time before Hazard will perform at the Santiago Bernabeu. “Eden Hazard? I have no doubt, I am sure we will see the best Eden Hazard,” Courtois told reporters on Wednesday”. He is the first with a desire to show it. I see him very well, and I hope he will soon be able to prove it.”
“Before the injury, he played a few games very well, and he was so unlucky there, and it was not easy to get out of it. But now this month I saw him preparing very well. I am sure that in no time, he will explode and will give a lot of joy to the team”. The Belgium international goalkeeper arrived at Madrid from Chelsea in 2018 and also struggled initially, but he flipped his form. The 28-year-old has praised coach Zinedine Zidane for continuing to support him. “Zidane gave me a lot of confidence. I always felt that he was counting on me, and it is crucial,” he said. “In those difficult moments at the beginning of last year, if you don’t feel that the coach is with you, it becomes difficult.”
