Zinedine Zidane is excited to see Eden Hazard back in training.
The Belgian could be available for Real’s Champions League tie against Atalanta.
Much has been said about Hazard’s time at Real and his record-breaking transfer from Chelsea. Since coming in, he has missed majority of the games he was eligible for and has still to go 5 successive games without picking up an injury.
However, Zinedine Zidane is backing Hazard to return to his best again. He said, “Hazard is in much better spirits and is happy to be back out there. When you’re back on the training pitch it means you’re close to being back amongst the team.
“I think that he’s in good spirits and he wants to be back with the team as soon as possible. I hope that he’s able to do something with the team next week.”
Real face Valencia next on Sunday before taking on Valladolid next weekend. Hazard’s return will be essential to boost Real’s attacking ranks. A title-defence is still not out of the question this term but the Galacticos will need all of their best talents.
No matter how poor Hazard might be on the pitch, he definitely brings some sort of influence when he is fit.
