Following Belgium’s qualification for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, the former Chelsea winger was returned home. Hazard’s absence from Belgium’s match against Wales raised doubts about why the Real Madrid winger was sent home.
In a news conference, Martinez praised him, saying:
“Hazard has now returned to Real Madrid to work on his match sharpness in order to provide more for Los Blancos in the coming days.”
Eden Hazard joined Real Madrid in 2019 for an initial fee of £89 million plus £34 million in add-ons. Prior to his dream move to Spain, he was one of Chelsea’s greatest players.
When he joined Real Madrid, he was anticipated to step into Cristiano Ronaldo’s shoes at the Bernabeu. Hazard’s move, on the other hand, has been quite underwhelming.
He has not only struggled to score and assist on a continuous basis, but he has also struggled to stay in shape. Hazard has been overweight in pre-season for the past two seasons and has not been the same performer since leaving Chelsea.
