Belgium national team manager Roberto Martinez has spoken out on Eden Hazard’s injury.

Hazard suffered an injury in Real Madrid’s 0-1 defeat to Levante on Saturday.

Later the club confirmed in an official statement that Hazard was diagnosed with “fracture to his right distal fibula”.

It has not yet been confirmed how long the Belgian will be out, however, he is going to miss Real Madrid’s Champions League game against Manchester City on Wednesday as well as the El Clasico on March 1st.

“We are very sad, because this injury will leave him out of action for at least three months,” Martinez told reporters.

“A footballer like Eden should always be on the pitch. We have an excellent communication with Real Madrid’s medical staff and we are anxious about Eden.

“It’s a shame, because it has also happened before an important game like that of Manchester City.”
