Eden Hazard insists that winning trophies is incontrovertible at Real Madrid as the former Chelsea star eyes a rewarding 2019/20 season.
He switched to the La Liga giant this summer on a record transfer after spending 7 years at South West London. He was a part of a huge rebuilding strategy by the Galacticos in trying to overcome their previous season lows.
Madrid finished third behind their bitter rivals, Barcelona in the La Liga and got knocked out by Ajax in the Champions League Round of 16.
“When you play for Real Madrid you need to win things every season. You need to win, win, win,” Hazard told Real Madrid’s official website. “If you don’t win the Champions League the fans get down and that’s to be expected. At this club, you always want to win and that’s why I’m here. I want to play games, score goals and, come the end of the season, lift trophies.”
The Belgian winger made his debut for the club against Bayern Munich last Friday. Madrid lost 3-1 but they have a chance to bounce back against Arsenal on Tuesday.
“I play with freedom. That’s difficult in football because there are defenders, midfielders… but that’s the kind of player I am,” Hazard continued.
“If I don’t have that freedom I don’t play well and end up on the bench. I like to get on the ball, move to the right, to the left, shift around and play with my instinct. I don’t think: I have to do this, play the ball to the right, to the left. I just play, get on the ball and decide what to do.”
