Eden Hazard He has an appointment with his destiny this next Friday in Etihad against Manchester City. The Belgian arrived last summer as the star signing of Real Madrid, but he has barely been able to prove it. He was slow to get in shape at the beginning of the season and when he remembered the player who shone at Chelsea, he injured his ankle a couple of times and had to undergo surgery. It seemed that the season had ended after the operation in March, but the league break for the coronavirus It gave him a new opportunity to show his full potential. However, his eternal ankle discomfort caused that opportunity to pass him by without taking advantage of it.
Now, he has before him a new opportunity to compensate himself, to demonstrate that the 100 million euros that Real Madrid paid for him were not a mistake. That opportunity is called the Champions League and the appointment, this coming Friday, August 7. That day, at Etihad, Real Madrid rises its being or not being in the competition. The Whites must come back 2-1 against Manchester City. Hazard He knows that it is now or never to save a bad season, his first at Real Madrid. All eyes are on him and he knows it. During the week of rest he gave Zidane a the squad after winning LaLiga, the Belgian has continued to perform exercises to strengthen his ankle and arrive in top form at the appointment against the City of Pep Guardiola.
Zidane have unshakable faith in Eden Hazard. The Frenchman had been insisting on his signing for years and last summer he finally saw his wishes come true. The coach showed from the first moment that for him, Hazard is fixed and only injuries can get him out of the starting lineup. That faith remains the same now with City just around the corner and with the Belgian missing matches in the Express League due to some inconvenience. For the appointment of this next Friday, while talking if Zidane will play with trident above or with four midfielders, Hazard is fixed in that eleven to play with Benzema up. Only an injury will change the mind of the coach who sees in the Belgian the decisive player of this Madrid.
