Carlo Ancelotti explains there’s no tussle between himself and Hazard and Bale.
The Real Madrid manager explains there are no issues between him and players Hazard and Bale.
Both the players have struggled for game time this season for their own separate reasons.
Gareth Bale who has only six months left on his contract has missed several games due to injury.
“Nothing has happened [with Hazard],” Ancelotti said during Real Madrid’s pre-match press conference on Wednesday.
“The only [thing is] that there is competition in the team and I have to choose the best [players] in each game. This affects many players, I can’t deny it. Nothing has happened, [Hazard] is training and waiting for the coach’s call. I think he will be ready when he plays.
“At the moment he is still a Real Madrid player. He is training and he is focused. We have nothing else to think about.
“Nothing strange has happened [with Bale and Hazard], it’s just that there is competition and the coach, which is me, who has to choose the best [line-up] for each game.”
