Real Madrid star Eden Hazard hasn’t had an easy debut season with Real Madrid. The Belgian winger has suffered two serious injuries and while the current postponement of all competitions helps his potential return to the pitch this season, it looks like Los Blancos will have to wait until the 2020-2021 season to see the best version of Eden Hazard.

The attacker talked to RTBL and shared his thoughts on the current situation and his first season in the Spanish capital.

“I’m fine now! I stay at home, taking care of myself and I’m doing much better after the doctors remove the stitches of the last surgery. Now I’m training a bit harder. I can walk, so everything is going fine,” said Hazard about his recovery.

The attacker returned to Madrid after having surgery in Dallas and now he is forced to stay at home because of the coronavirus outbreak in Spain.

“I’m not saying I can’t get infected, but I stay home and nobody comes, we can’t see anybody. I’m a bit scared, as everybody else, but mainly of infecting someone else, that’s the most delicate thing. We have people taking care of us and I’m more worried about those people who are a bit weaker and have more problems,” he explained.

It was fair to expect better performances from Hazard this season. The attacker spent the first third of the campaign getting used to his new team and just when he was starting to play better, he suffered a foot fracture which forced him to miss more than two months of action. Then, he came back ready to make an impact but picked up yet another injury. Hazard admits that his first season has been disappointing.

“My first season in Madrid has been bad, but not all of it. It was a season for me to adapt and get used, I will be judged by my second year. It’s up to me to stay in good shape next season. We have a good group and this is being a great experience for me. I still have four more years left on my contract,” concluded Hazard.
