Belgium coach Roberto Martinez talked to Cadena COPE and discussed Eden Hazard’s injury. Martinez believes that the season is not over yet for Hazard.

“We’ve talked with Eden and we took a look to when he can make his return. Everyone was very disappointed about the injury but a player has to live with these things. He’s missed very few games over the last eight years and I’m sure that Hazard will be back before the last game of the season and that he will be an important player for Real Madrid. I’m not asked for my opinion but we stay in touch with Real Madrid’s medical staff,” said Martinez.

Hazard suffered another fracture just two games after recovering from the one which kept him out for the last three months of action. Some reports suggest that he will need surgery to repair his fracture —something which would end his season— but Roberto Martinez appears to think that Hazard will just take some weeks off hoping that he can still make an impact this year.
