Real Madrid: Ancelotti gives Hazard another chance, but doesn’t take it for granted
Carlo Ancelotti kept his word and gave ownership in Cceres to Eden Hazard. But the Belgian end of the Real Madrid, the most expensive signing in the history of the white club, did not take the hint. I spent a long hour on the lawn of the Prince Philipbut it was as if it had not been.
The performance of his forward teammates, Rodrygo Goes and Marco Asensioleft him even more in evidence, because apart from the great goal of the Brazilianboth showed involvement and professionalism in a match that required going down into the mud in every way. Hazard also inhibited at that pointwhich only puts new black clouds in his future as a Madrid player.
With a contract until 2024, the Belgian, that comes from also disappointing with his team in the World Cup in Qatar, should be, logically, one of the sales of next summer. In any case, the ex of Chelsea will be protagonist of a ruinous operation for Madridboth economically and in sports.
His numbers on the Prince Felipe were revealing. Zero dribbles attempted for whom, at Chelsea, he was one of the most unbalanced players in the world one on one. Zero fouls receiveda clear consequence of the above. Just 24 touches of the ball, with five losses. Y zero auctions, on goal or outside the three sticks of the extreme goal. A ghostly performance that keeps him from even having opportunities in the Copa del Rey again, no matter how much the KO tournament is secondary for Real Madrid.
Ancelotti ‘excuses’ him
If anything can exonerate Hazard is the state of the grass, very complicated for technical players. Even Ancelotti was upset. “You can’t play football. For me it’s not football, it’s another sport, nice because small teams can fight and compete with bigger teams. It’s good for the fans but the fans also want to see nice games. Hazard? I liked it, it is difficult to evaluate the players individually, it was impossible to play. The smaller players like Hazard or Rodrygo suffer more, but he has complied”, concluded Carlo.
