Real Madrid boss Zidane hopes 'unlucky' Hazard can return in 2-3 weeks

Eden Hazard Real Madrid

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has outlined his hope that Eden Hazard can return in 2-3weeks from his latest injury setback.

Hazard has already had two different spells out due to muscle injuries this season, and he also missed time due to Covid-19.

Hazard has failed to live up to expectations in Madrid since joining from Chelsea in a €100 million (£88m/$120m) deal in the summer of 2019.

Big things were expected from the Belgian star, but he has now been ruled out of a stretch of games nine different times due to injury or fitness issues since arriving at Madrid.

Zidane admitted that Hazard has grown frustrated at his run of injuries.

"It's not an easy time for the footballer. I'm sure it's a matter of time before we see him back playing and hopefully he won't pick up another injury," Zidane said at a press conference.

"Hopefully, when he recovers, we see the best Hazard, maybe in two or three weeks when he recovers.

"I think it's a bit of bad luck. It's not been easy on the player. We have to maintain a positive attitude. He's a great player, we need him back 100 per cent.

"Do you think he's happy with what's going on? Well, no. He's doing what he can to be in good shape, but you know in the life of a player you can be injured.

"We'll have to look at maybe changing something and improve this situation. He's the first player who wants to be fine, of course."

Should Zidane's prediction of a two-week absence come true, Hazard would miss four La Liga matches: against Huesca, Getafe, Valencia and Valladolid.

Hazard should be considered a major doubt for Madrid's Champions League last-16 tie with Atalanta in two and a half weeks, with a league match against Real Sociedad four days after that first leg.
