Zidane Addresses Hazard Form

After Real Madrid were dumped out of the Spanish Super Cup on Thursday, Zinedine Zidane addressed the poor form shown by the club’s record signing Eden Hazard, who has scored just three goals since his arrival in 2019.

The Belgian played just 67 minutes of Los Blancos’ 2-1 defeat to Athletic Bilbao in their Spanish Super Cup semi-final, after being replaced by 20-year-old Vinicius Junior.

Having featured just 10 times in all competitions this season, there is a feeling that Real supporters are getting impatient with Hazard, who has only managed 32 appearances and three goals in a season and a half since his €115 million (R2.1 billion) transfer from Chelsea.

Following the clash, Zidane suggested the 30-year-old has lost some confidence due to his struggles in Spain and called for fans to give him the necessary time to get back to his best.

"He needs to recover confidence, play a great game or score a goal, just to do something different," he said, according to the Daily Mail.

"We know what a great player he is and we need to be patient with him as he is working hard..

"We are behind him and we must give him time. The fans want to see the best version of Eden so we must be patient.

"We're sticking with him and he really wants to step up. But today it wasn't just Eden, we're all in this together."
