The Belgian coach says his star player is impatient to return to competition.
Eden Hazard is not affected by international matches this month. Blame it on a contracted injury. One more. His selection did well without him since it dominated Wales (3-1) in its first qualifying match for the 2022 World Cup, but that does not prevent Roberto Martinez, the coach of the Red Devils, from think about him.
In a press conference this Friday, the Spanish coach gave news of the member of Real Madrid. “He’s calm and determined to make his comeback. He’s in a good state of mind, did he declare. We work hand in hand with Real Madrid and sometimes it’s good that he comes here to work with our staff. He desperately wants to get back on the field. He is not used to being in this situation but shows great motivation to be back.
Words that echo those he had made earlier this month when he assured that there was “no conflict” with Real Madrid, despite the dispute over the best option to choose for the rehabilitation of the old Lille.
This season, out of the 36 games played by the Merengue, Hazard only played 14, of which only 9 started. His overall playing time is only the 18th of the entire squad of the Spanish champions (646 minutes).
