In recent days, Eden Hazard has found a smile with his Madrid teammates. The captain of the Red Devils has resumed collective training since Wednesday and he seems to be doing well physically. It must be said that Real Madrid did not want to take the slightest risk this time by limiting it first to individual sessions, in particular muscle building, for four weeks.
But now he is ready to play again this Saturday against Elche (4:15 p.m.), just like his teammate Sergio Ramos, who had a meniscus operation in early February. “They can have minutes, of course”, Zinedine Zidane told a press conference on Friday. “The idea is that they have minutes, but I’m not going to say how many yet.”
The French coach does not hide his joy to see Eden Hazard back in his group. “I can see he’s good physically and also emotionally. He’s been through a very uncomfortable time and today he’s doing well. That’s why he will be with us and I hope he can play.”
Asked about the psychological impact of the chain of injuries of the Belgian, Zidane is also positive. “In Madrid, he has never had such a long injury. But he has a long contract (Editor’s note: until June 2024) and when he returns, he will be impressive again. I’m sure. His form can give rise to doubts. , but he has the will to do very well. “
