Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea: Simeone pays tribute to Thomas Tuchel

Former Chelsea midfielder, Gus Poyet, has revealed why Actual Madrid ahead, Eden Hazard, is struggling below supervisor, Zinedine Zidane, on the Santiago Bernabeu.

Hazard, who’s at present injured, established himself as one of many world’s greatest gamers throughout his time at Chelsea.

The 30-year-old, who scored over 100 objectives for Chelsea, joined Actual Madrid in 2019 for greater than £100million.

Hazard’s performances for Zidane’s males had been largely underwhelming.

He scored simply as soon as through the 2019/20 season and has not featured frequently for the La Liga champions this season resulting from damage.

Talking forward of Actual Madrid’s away Champions League last-16 first-leg conflict with Atalanta on Wednesday, Poyet stated Hazard is struggling at Actual Madrid due to his physicality.

In accordance with him, when the winger arrived in Madrid, he instantly seemed older.

“It hurts me lots on this case. The 12 months Cristiano Ronaldo left was the best time to switch him. He had had an ideal season with Chelsea,” Poyet informed Radio MARCA.

“When Hazard arrived in Madrid, he instantly seemed older. I don’t suppose the model of play is the issue with this participant. Neither is the mentality; I’d say that it’s bodily.

“He has paid the value for some bodily issues that haven’t allowed him to return and have meant he has not returned to his greatest circumstances.

“One in all my maxims as a coach is to place gamers on the pitch with minimal or no excuses, and I don’t suppose Hazard has ever been like that. There was all the time some excuse: he was at 60 per cent, the group was not good.

“It’s not Zidane’s fault, the participant is determined by himself to face this nice problem of turning it round.”
