Eden Hazard has suffered a relapse at Real Madrid and is still on the sidelines, unable to recover from injury. Zinedine Zidane is worried and does not understand the situation that will deprive him of the Belgian player for probably several more. While waiting for an explanation on this long absence, the French coach of Real could be interested in the interview given by John Obi Mikel, former partner of Eden Hazard at Chelsea, to The Athletic.
Real Madrid in the dark about Eden Hazard
Eden Hazard is still unavailable and the situation becomes incomprehensible for Zinedine Zidane and Real Madrid. “There is something going on. He had never been injured in his career and this is new for him. I can’t explain it further. We want to help him, I hope he will be with us soon. What else can I tell you? Nothing more. We will help him. But the truth is that I do not know if it will be with me or with someone else, because he has a long contract, but what I want, with all my strength, with all the people who work here, is to see Eden Hazard as a player and sooner or later he will get there, “said the French coach of the Merengue recently in a press conference.
“The worst practice player”
John Obi Mikel, for his part, may have given the beginning of an explanation in an interview with The Athletic. And the Nigerian, former partner of the Belgian at Chelsea, pointed out his lack of professionalism. “When we were training, he was waiting for us to finish. He is the laziest player, but on Sunday he was always the best player in the game. It was incredible. I’ve always said that Hazard is one of the most gifted players, he had everything: speed, power, skill, technique….. He was just behind Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. But only if he wanted to. Sometimes he said to himself: “If I want to be as good, I can be as good. Not as good as Messi because he comes from another planet, but I think I can be close to Cristiano and even better.” These are the words that came out of his mouth, but he is not so dedicated. He doesn’t train well, he’s the worst training player I’ve ever played with.” This is not the first time that the lack of dedication and work is pointed out and Real Madrid seems to make the bitter discovery as well.
