Eden Hazard has made an admission revealing that his first couple of seasons in a Real Madrid shirt “have not been good” amid transfer speculation on a possible return to Chelsea.
The Belgian international, who left Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2019 for just over £100million to join Los Blancos, was linked with a sensational return to west London over the transfer window, but will now play out his third season in the Spanish capital.
In an interview with HLN, Hazard said:
“I signed with Real Madrid for five seasons. The first two have not been good, the injuries have not helped me, but I still have three more to prove my worth.
“I hope it works, I hope to get up one morning and feel great on the training ground. If I feel pain there, I drag it to the games and I will continue to have it. I am waiting for that moment when I can show my worth again.
“Real Madrid have already spent a lot of money on me. I want to give something back to them.”
“People think that I am always injured. That is the truth. But if you review my career there is not a player who, for a period of 10 years, has played as many games as I have,” he added.
“I do what I have to do. I work daily with the physio. That’s what I do.
“Since the beginning of the season we have done a great job with the physical trainer.
“At the moment it is going well, I am feeling better, but I am not completely 100% still. I hope we continue like this.”
