Hazard responds to criticism ahead of Champions league fixture

Eden Hazard promises the “goals will come” ahead of Real Madrid’s Champions league game against Belgian team Club Brugge this week.

The Belgian attacker has failed to make his mark at Real Madrid since joining for £100 million this summer. Hazard has played 4 games this season with no assists or goals to his name.

“Personally, I can do better,” Hazard admitted. “I know that people expect a lot from me and I’m the one who has to show my level on the pitch.

“People have seen what I did in France, Belgium and Chelsea. Now I have to improve even more to make the fans proud of me.”

The club’s record signing did not feature at the start of the season after picking up a thigh injury in pre-season.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane said he is not worried about Hazard’s integration into the team.

“The same thing happened to me, but I stayed calm. I knew that in time it would work. It was worse when I arrived in Italy. It took me three months there, in Madrid a little less.

“Hazard is the same. I know he will succeed here, you have to be patient and get behind him because he’s going to move forward.”

As Real Madrid fans wait to witness the form that landed Hazard Chelsea’s player of the season award in 4 out of his 6 seasons there, Hazard acknowledges he still needs to prove himself to the Los Blancos faithful.

“As I said in my presentation, I’m not yet a galactico. I have to be the one to prove that I can become one.”
