Eden Hazard has reportedly come down with an added injury.
According to the statement put on Real Madrid’s website, Eden Hazard has come down with a muscle injury.
“Following tests carried out today on our player, Eden Hazard, by Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with a muscle injury in his right leg. His recovery will continue to be assessed,” Madrid’s statement read.
Zinedine Zidane further explained that it’s a different injury and can happen to many players. However, this means that Hazard’s return is further delayed now.
“It’s a different injury, it’s a muscular one. But I can’t say how long he’ll be out for. It happened in the final training session and we thought it was just stiffness, but it turned out it was something more. That can happen. He is frustrated because he was doing well.”
Zidane stressed on how Real Vallodilad made it tough for Real Madrid. He said: “This was not simple, but the most important thing is to take the three points. We’re going to improve. Remember, we haven’t had a pre-season. We weren’t so great in the first half. Then we made changes, which we’ll always do if needed.”
Zidane said: “I can’t confirm anything until October 5th, as anything can happen until then. Right now, he is a member of the squad. I decide the line-ups and that’s that.”
