Belgium were one of the gross underperformers in the recently-concluded World Cup. Regarded as one of the dark horses heading into the tournament, the Red Devils were knocked out of the group stages, much to everyone’s surprise.

Shortly after the World Cup exit, the nation’s Real Madrid ace Eden Hazard announced his retirement from international football.

And according to AS, the retirement marked a crucial stage in Hazard’s career and it appears the former Chelsea superstar is now keen on making an impression in the Real Madrid camp. He wants to right the wrongs after struggling to make his presence felt in the Spanish capital for three and a half years.

Hazard’s spell at Real Madrid has indeed gone south, with the forward scoring only seven goals since joining the club in the summer of 2019.

However, the Belgian has made a strong impression since returning to training in the Real Madrid camp. He has looked more involved and his commitment levels have impressed coach Carlo Ancelotti.

The report suggests that Hazard now intends to fight for his place in the Real Madrid setup. He wants to become a starter in the near future, moving ahead of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo in the pecking order.

The forward also wants to help Real Madrid secure silverware during the second half of the campaign, as he had promised his fans. But more importantly, he wants to get his career back on track after spending three and a half year difficult years at the Bernabeu.

Real Madrid, for their part, are open to selling Hazard in the near future in order to alleviate some of the losses incurred through the €100 million expenditure on the former Chelsea frontman.

But he has made it clear in the past that he does not plan on leaving Real Madrid in January. And the 31-year-old is now focused on starting a ‘new life’ at the club following his international retirement.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
