Eden Hazard and his teammates are happy

Zinedine Zidane has made it clear that Eden Hazard is happy to set Real Madrid on their way to three points on Saturday afternoon after scoring an excellent goal against Huesca. The Belgian linked up well with his other teammates on the attack and had decent performance overall before being replaced on the hour mark, probably with one eye of the upcoming Champions League match against Inter. “I am pleased with his performance. He played 20 minutes the other day, today from the start… We know how good Eden is,” Zidane said in his post-match interview. “You can see a lot of other things on the pitch, with his link-up play… “He felt no discomfort and was content with his goal. And his teammates are happy.”

Fede Valverde impressed too, as a goal from his own complemented his energetic running in midfield in the second half. “We are not surprised at what he is doing,” Zidane said. “I’m happy that he scores. It’s not his main role, but it’s also important that he scores.” When asked if he was thinking about Inter’s upcoming game with his changes to the XI and substitutions, Zidane claimed that he was focusing only on Real Madrid against Huesca. “We had to make changes, but we didn’t think about the match on Tuesday,” he explained. “We need to get some rest, and we will see how to prepare for this game. But for now, we have to enjoy these three points.”
