Eden Hazard admits he is a Madrid flop after his first season

Eden Hazard accepts he has work to do to justify his place at Real Madrid after a nightmare first campaign after his big money move from Chelsea.

Hazard left Stamford Bridge in a deal worth an initial £88m, with add-ons possibly taking it up to as high as £150m.

But the Belgium international has had a terrible time in Spain so far, after he appeared to arrive for pre-season out of shape.

‘My first season at Madrid is bad, but not everything is bad,’ Hazard told RTBF. ‘It is an adaptation season. I will be judged in the second. It is up to me to be in good shape next year.

‘The group is good, I have met new people. For me it is a great experience. I still have four years of contract, I hope to be in good shape.’

The 29-year-old forward has scored once and provided five assists in 15 matches in the 2019-20 campaign.

At present, the Spanish season is on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic and Eden Hazard is in isolation.

‘I’m not saying I can’t catch it, but I’m inside the house, nobody’s coming, we can’t see anyone,’ he said.

‘I’m a little scared, like everyone else, but I especially have to be careful not to pass it on to others [if I get it], that is the most delicate thing.

‘We have to take care of ourselves. I am concerned about weaker people, who have more problems.’
