In an interview with Sport Magazine, Eden Hazard spoke candidly about the joy he’s discovered in training with Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid.
Said of Real Madrid’s training, Hazard claimed: “In training, we are always using the ball... there’s movement and mini-matches,”
”When you meet Italian coaches like I did, you are less happy. They are more rigid and repetitive. You find pleasure in victory. I spent three years with Italian coaches so to rediscover this pleasure again makes me happy.”
Hazard’s love for Zidane and Real Madrid has been an open secret since three years ago, and that’s about the time where Hazard claims he first made contact with Zizou.
“I didn’t talk much with him [before joining],” Hazard said of his contact with Zidane. ”The first time was during the 2016 European Championship in France. He called me and said: ‘It would be good if you came.’
”When Zidane calls you, it’s serious!”
