Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has scoffed off suggestions that Belgian summer signing Eden Hazard is struggling at the club.
Hazard’s critics come in the wake of a disapointing perfomance in the Madrid derby, where Real played out a goalles draw with city rivals Atletico, one of 6 games in which the former Chelsea man has not scored or provided an assist but Zidane is not worried about that.
“Relax. We want more from Hazard but im not worried. He will succeed here because he is a good player,” Zidane told reporters ahead of Madrid’s Champions League clash with Club Brugge as qouted by Spanish publication AS.
“I’m not going to give him any advice, or tell him how he should be. He’s a very important player for us and we want more from him but we have to remain calm. I’m not worried. He’ll succeed here because he’s a very good player – and that isn’t going to change. If he shows it tomorrow then that’ll be great”.
“The same thing happened to me and I was relaxed about it. I knew that things would start working out with time. It was much worse when I first moved to Italy. It took me three months before it all started coming together. I know Hazard is going to be an important player – he’ll come good”. added the Frenchman.
