- Zinedine Zidane points out that Eden Hazard needs time to rediscover his best form.
- At this point, the boss is happy that the Belgian is finally available.
"He's there," Zinedine Zidane said of Eden Hazard's performance in a 1-1 draw against Villarreal at El Madrigal on the La Liga matchday 10. "He played. We need to manage the minutes well, but he’s with us and he’s good."
Hazard was granted his third start this season; however, he failed to deliver and was replaced by Vinicius Junior 65 minutes into the game. The Belgian didn't attempt a single shot, made zero key passes and never sent a cross into the opponents' box.
All in all, Hazard has not enjoyed a great start to the season. The 29-year-old has already missed 8 games due to a knock, a muscle injury and a positive test for COVID-19.
The ace has made 4 appearances across all competitions so far, scoring one goal in a 4-1 win against Huesca.
