Eden Hazard has not failed at Real Madrid

Eden Hazard has not failed at Real Madrid, says Roberto Martinez, with the Belgian expected to become a massive player for Real Madrid.

Real Madrid signed Eden Hazard from Chelsea for £100 million ($127m) in the summer of 2019.

Having seen Hazard played superb in the English Premier League, and on a Champions League stage, Los Blancos believed they had found another star forward to help fill the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, Hazard has endured an injury season in Spain, with just 15 appearances with just one goal scored.

Much was expected from the Belgian star, but Roberto Martinez says it is far too early to be writing him off.

Madrid are considered to have been unfortunate when it comes to a series of niggling knocks that were never suffered in west London, with there every reason to believe that a fully-fit Hazard will become a key man for the club over the course of a long-term contract.

The Belgium national team head coach told beIN Sports, of a player that has started to generate exit talk, "I think Eden's situation has been very clear.

"He's missed over 20 games. In eight seasons at Chelsea, he missed 18 games, so there is a degree of bad luck. Eden hasn't been able to do his job.

"Has he failed? No, and now is not the moment to judge him.

"Whenever he finishes his time at Real Madrid, then he can look back and rate his performance and his role.

"If you ask me, I think Eden Hazard will be a massive, massive player for Real Madrid.

"I know Eden inside out. He is in the best moment of his career. I don't think Real Madrid will ever decide to move on. [Real Madrid] has probably the best player to start a new project.


"The way Real Madrid have been playing this season, in the game he got injured against PSG, that's the best Real Madrid I've seen play for many, many years.

"The way they combined, the understanding with Eden Hazard and him with the other players, that team was coming. He is the best footballer to build a project around at Real Madrid".
