During an exchange with the reporters, Zinedine Zidane gave his final word on the ongoing Eden Hazard transfer talk.
Zinedine Zidane finally gave his word in the Eden Hazard transfer saga that has been going on for a while.
As expected by everyone, the big signing from Chelsea did not pan out well up until now and has been a core issue at Real Madrid. With a promising future at his doorsteps, Hazard was unable to perform due to several injury problems during his two years in Spain.
Unfortunately, the Belgian’s decreasing form and fitness was the centre of attention for all the critics around the club. Hazard’s recent reaction to Real’s Champions League exit further raised alarm bells from those who hate him.
In spite of everything that has happened, Zidane refuses to accept that the star will leave the club soon. Instead, the French boss believes that the 30-year-old will stay with the team as per his long-term contract.
Zidane told the reporters of Hazard: “All the players have their hearts in the club. But for now, it hasn’t been possible to see the Eden Hazard we want to see.”
“But I believe he is going to get there. It’s a difficult moment with everything that’s happened. But he has a contract and what he wants is to succeed here.”
Zidane added: “Eden has apologised and he did it well. It was not his intention to hurt anyone, that is the most important thing.”
“He knows what he has to do on the pitch and he’s going to do it. We spoke the other day, after the match. He was apologising for his reaction – to me, to the club, to the players – and that’s it.”
