Eden Hazard shrugs off injury history amid lack of game-time: “Everything is back to normal”

Real Madrid’s investment in Eden Hazard has widely proven to be a disappointment, with the attacker struggling with a lack of form, injuries and seemingly reduced prominence in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans.

During his time at the club so far, Hazard has featured in only 72 competitive matches, scoring just seven goals in the process. To put things into perspective, he had scored 16 league goals during his last season at Chelsea.

Hazard’s failures at Santiago Bernabeu have cost the club dearly, though it appears the Whites have managed to recover their losses through the ascension of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

Nevertheless, Hazard has recently opened up about his struggles with injuries, suggesting that the forward is back to ‘normal’ and his woes are unlikely to come back, at least for the time being.

“My injuries at Real Madrid? Now everything is back to normal,” said Hazard (h/t Madrid Xtra). The Belgian international, though, is hoping for a platform to showcase his skills rather than sitting on the bench most of the time.

“I only hope for one thing, to be able to show on the pitch that I’m still at the top, there’s not much more to say about it,” he added.

Hazard’s comments come in the midst of his struggles with game-time at Real Madrid. He has indeed fallen behind the likes of Vinicius, Rodygo and even Marco Asensio in the pecking order, having featured in only three league games so far this season.

Hazard does not appear to have any future left at Real Madrid either, especially as the Whites look to make way for new signings such as Endrick, with the Brazilian youngster keen on joining the Spanish giants in the near future.

The current edition of the Real Madrid squad is full of young talents, who have shown remarkable potential in recent years.

Arda Guler is among the young players looking to make a mark in European football in the years to come.

The young Turk joined Real Madrid earlier this summer, rejecting many other European giants in the process.

Toni Kroos mentoring Guler at Real Madrid

Guler has not enjoyed the best of starts to his life at Santiago Bernabeu, as he is spending a brief time on the sidelines due to an injury.

However, Guler has not stopped working on his characteristics, as he looks to kickstart his Real Madrid career on a positive note.

To that end, the former Fenerbahce starlet is receiving some key support from one of Real Madrid’s midfield pillars in the form of Toni Kroos.

This is according to MARCA, which suggests that the German international is mentoring Guler in his early days at Santiago Bernabeu.

Kroos: huge ‘sponsor’ of Guler

The report highlights how Toni Kroos is a huge admirer of Arda Guler. The German had even heaped praise on the youngster from Turkey when he joined the club earlier in the summer.

Guler, therefore, is closely training with Kroos, whose years of experience, composure, and knowledge of football, could help the youngster grow at Santiago Bernabeu.

This fits in well with Carlo Ancelotti’s vision at Real Madrid, as the Italian boss wants youngsters to have room to grow, especially with guidance from some of the older guards in the team.

It is one of the key reasons Real Madrid wanted to stick to Kroos and Luka Modric, despite bringing in Arda Guler and Jude Bellingham in the summer.

Guler, therefore, has the stage set for him to start his Real Madrid career on a strong note. After impressing in training, the next step for the youngster is to make a promising debut, which is just around the corner.
