Every Real Madrid fan held their breath for a moment when Eden Hazard took a knock to his ankle and began to limp against Eibar on Sunday.
Of course, Hazard will be wrapped up in cotton wool for the rest of the 2019/20 LaLiga Santander season. He was taken off in the 60th minute and immediately had an ice-pack put in the suspect ankle.
There will be a lot more care for the player who could make a real difference in Real Madrid‘s title race and a player who has shown his commitment to the club during the confinement.
Perhaps he could have taken better care of himself last summer and he arrived at Real Madrid slightly overweight.
But this time round he’s done the impossible and put himself in a position to help his club in the final stretch of the 2019/20 campaign.
He felt indebted to Real Madrid, who paid 120 million euros for him in the summer, and what’s more, with his work in the recovery process, he’s shown that he is up to the task.
Without a doubt, the best news to come out of Real Madrid‘s 3-1 victory over Eibar was Hazard‘s return.
