Former Chelsea midfielder, Gus Poyet, has revealed why Actual Madrid ahead, Eden Hazard, is struggling beneath supervisor, Zinedine Zidane, on the Santiago Bernabeu.
Hazard, who’s at present injured, established himself as one of many world’s finest 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 have been largely underwhelming.
He scored simply as soon as in the course of the 2019/20 season and has not featured often for the La Liga champions this season as a consequence of damage.
Talking forward of Actual Madrid’s away Champions League last-16 first-leg conflict with Atalanta on Wednesday, Poyet mentioned Hazard is struggling at Actual Madrid due to his physicality.
In line with him, when the winger arrived in Madrid, he abruptly seemed older.
“It hurts me rather a lot on this case. The yr Cristiano Ronaldo left was the perfect time to exchange him. He had had a fantastic season with Chelsea,” Poyet instructed Radio MARCA.
“When Hazard arrived in Madrid, he abruptly seemed older. I don’t assume the type of play is the issue with this participant. Neither is the mentality; I might 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 finest situations.
“Considered one of my maxims as a coach is to place gamers on the pitch with minimal or no excuses, and I don’t assume Hazard has ever been like that. There was at all times some excuse: he was at 60 per cent, the group was not good.
“It’s not Zidane’s fault, the participant is dependent upon himself to face this nice problem of turning it round.”
