Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti has finally come out to explain why Eden Hazard is yet to reach superstar status at Real Madrid, given his hefty fee. Since the arrival of the Belgian international from English Premier League side Chelsea the player has been having a disastrous moment filled with injuries. Eden Hazard has failed to impress since his more than €100million move from Chelsea in 2019.
Carlo Ancelotti Says Injuries has Stopped Hazard from Reaching Class
Injuries have plagued his time at the LaLiga giants so far. And when asked in Tuesday’s press conference, ahead of their today’s La Liga home game against Osasuna, why Hazard is yet to reach superstar status at Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti said:” He doesn’t have this status because he has had a lot of injuries and little by little he will get better.”
The former Everton head coach also said: “I am sure that this season we will see a better version, and he will play more than what he is doing now.” “Hazard has it all, quality, motivation…he has to put up with it, that what happens at times, is that the coach prefers other players.”
