Eden Hazard on his 'bad' first season with Real Madrid

Eden Hazard has admitted that his first season with Real Madrid since he signed from Chelsea last summer transfer window has been "bad".

The Belgian moved to Bernabeu for a fee of £100m, but he was unfortunate and made just 15 appearances due to several injuries.

Last year Hazard was a real goal machine as he found the net 21 times for Chelsea, but this year he scored only once.

The 29-year-old player is most certainly looking forward to start the second season for Real as the first one was highly unsuccessful.

In a recent interview for broadcaster RTBF the Belgian said: "My first season at Madrid has been bad - but not all of it.

"It's been a season of adaptation. I'll be judged on the second one. It's up to me to be in good shape next year.

The postponement of Euro 2020 now gives Hazard a chance to recover from the surgery on an ankle injury that has kept him out of action since February.

"I think it's difficult for the fans because they want to see an international tournament every summer, which is a shame for them. But I also think there are priorities in life,” – said Eden Hzard.

"We'll have another year in 2021, which is a shame, but my ankle will allow me to get back in shape.”
