Eden Hazard admits 'bad' first year at Real Madrid

Hazard joined Real Madrid last summer from Chelsea and he was considered as Real Madrid's replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who left the club to join Juventus in 2018 summer.

Hazard has only managed one goal and five assists from 15 appearances in all competitions and recognises he has not been at his best.

Eden Hazard knows he has struggled in his first campaign at Real Madrid but says his success in the Spanish capital needs to be analysed next season. I'll be judged on the second season. It's a great group of players, I've met a lot of new people.

"I've still got four years left on my contract and I hope to be in form", the Belgian global said. "I still have four years of the contract, I hope to be in good shape".

Hazard, 29, like his Real Madrid teammates is in self-isolation in Madrid after returning from the United States and had originally targeted a return to competitive action in time to represent Belgium at Euro 2020, which has now been definitively postponed due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

Madrid players are training at home in self-isolation as a result of Spain's state of emergency due to the coronavirus outbreak.


However, that tournament has been delayed for 12 months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"I'd planned to play, the operation was a few weeks ago now.

We will all have another year in 2021, which is a shame, but my ankle will allow me to return to be in shape", Hazard said.

"I think it's probably hard for the fans because they want to watch an worldwide tournament every summer, so it's hard for them".

"But I also think there are priorities in life. It'll wait until next year", Hazard pointed out.
