Real Madrid is increasingly concerned about the fitness of its Belgian star, Eden Hazard, who was not in good enough shape to play for his country, and missed the Belgium matches against Denmark and Iceland in the European Nations League matches, and Roberto Martinez, the Belgium coach, admitted that he was not Fit enough to share.
Reports in Spain indicate that Real is also frustrated about the fitness levels of the overweight star ahead of the new season, with the Belgian star being two to three weeks behind his teammates in training.
“Diario Sport” newspaper says that Real feels that Hazard, who was contracted from Chelsea for 150 million pounds in the summer of 2019, should not have joined his country during that period, and remains with Real to work on his fitness.
The newspaper pointed out that there are questions about his commitment to changing his fortunes in the Real after his disappointing first season, which was negatively affected by injury, and worse, and this is the second year in a row that Hazard (29 years old), out of fitness before a new season.
Hazard reportedly appeared in the 7kg plus weight with Real Madrid, alarmed Zinedine Zidane, the Real Madrid coach, and now it is unlikely that he will be fit enough to start defending the “LaLiga” title when his team starts his career against Real Sociedad tomorrow. On Sunday, “Sport” reported that Hazard needed two or three weeks to reach the same fitness levels for his teammates.
This means that Vinicius Junior is likely to take the lead over the Belgian in Real’s options, and for Hazard to start the season as a reserve player despite the value of his exorbitant contract deal, and a Spanish newspaper also says that Hazard’s stay with Real is unlikely to last longer, unless he changes things. And it shows the brilliant form he appeared with Chelsea.
