Former Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger has backed Eden Hazard to hit top form in the coming games. The Frenchman, however, warned the Real Madrid supporters that won’t fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Hazard joined Los Blancos in an £89m this summer, following a Europa League-winning campaign with Chelsea. However, the Belgian has struggled to make the expected impact having scored and assisted a goal each in his first six games for the club.
“He will be the answer but not in replacing Ronaldo that is for sure,” Wenger told BeIN Sports.
“He will not score 50 goals a year because that’s now how they play football.”
“They need another goal scorer in Real Madrid because Benzema is now 32 and if they had someone younger around him to score the goals, maybe they could do very well.”
“Eden Hazard is an exceptional player to create chances to sometimes finish when he needs to do in big games.”
“He’s not scared of anybody – I don’t think Real have yet to see the real Hazard, he’s not as sharp physically as he can be.”
“That’s why I believe they will discover the real Hazard.”
Following the international break, Eden Hazard will be seen in action for Real Madrid when they travel to RCE Mallorca for their upcoming league fixture.
