Eden Hazard came back to pre-season training overweight and Zidane if furious with the player’s attitude.
The Belgian winger secured a move to the Santiago Bernabeu last year from Chelsea.
He joined the Belgium National team for their Nation League but didn’t feature in any of those two games.
The 29-year old returned to Madrid training overweight and has repeated the same mistake as last year and now might be an extra two or three weeks behind the rest of the squad.
Vinicius Junior would be given a start when the new season resumes.
The club’s hierarchy are worried about the Belgian star’s lack of commitment to the club.
Tony Cascarino told talkSPORT: “We all know how brilliant Hazard can be, we all know the difference he can make to a football team.
“But he didn’t take the move to Madrid seriously, and he’s paid for it this season.
“He turned up overweight, he’s been playing catch-up, he’s getting niggly injuries. Watching him last night was like watching a completely different player.
“Kyle Walker must’ve been thinking, ‘Is this the same player I faced at Chelsea?’
“He’s a brilliant player, but he’s paid the price for turning up at Madrid for a big fee and not taking it seriously.
“He does switch off every now and again. As good and as great as he can be, he does down tools every so often.”
