If it continues like this, it’s really ‘eating and running’. Eden Hazard (32, Real Madrid) collapsed again. A knee injury prevented him from playing for up to five weeks.
On the 5th (Korean time), Real Madrid announced on the club’s official website that “Hazard was diagnosed with patellar tendonitis in his left knee in a medical test.” According to local reports, he will be sidelined for four to five weeks due to patellar tendonitis in his knee.
Hazard joined Real Madrid from Chelsea in the summer of 2019. Expectations were high as he conquered the Premier League by scoring 110 goals and 92 assists in 352 matches at Chelsea. He was recognized as the successor to Cristiano Ronaldo, receiving the number 7 shirt.
Real Madrid paid a transfer fee of 115 million euros (approximately 155.3 billion won) to sign Hazard with one year remaining on the contract. Expectations were high, but Hazard’s life at Real Madrid was not smooth. He was criticized for his extra weight and his performance was not up to par in his Premier League days.메이저놀이터
Although he joined in 2019, he never competed in ‘El Clasico’. As he was completely excluded from the Real Madrid plan, he fell into a ‘eating and running’. Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale, who once ruled Europe, are having worse careers.
At the beginning of this season, he was aiming for a revival by being moderated in the UEFA Champions League. However, it did not turn out as expected and was gradually pushed back to the bench. Real Madrid is playing the season with a triangle of Rodrygo, Benzema and Vinicius Junior.
Although he is not a key player for Real Madrid, a tight schedule awaits him, including the FIFA Club World Cup. In March, there is even a semi-final match against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey (King’s Cup). In a situation where each player is important, Hazard’s departure is a headache.
Azar’s contract expires in 2024. With one year remaining, he only played 73 games for Real Madrid. If he leaves Real Madrid as a free agent, he is likely to be rated as Real Madrid’s worst signing.
