Eden Hazard leaves Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane confused with latest injury

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has admitted he “can’t explain” Eden Hazard’s latest injury.

The La Liga giants released a statement on Monday confirming that Hazard had sustained "an injury in the right psoas muscle."

It comes after he made a return from injury to feature in Saturday’s win over Elche, with the former Chelsea star struggling since joining Los Blancos in 2019.

He has suffered with a number of injuries despite rarely missing a game during his time at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard missed Real Madrid training on Monday and has been ruled out of this week’s Champions League round-of-16 second leg clash with Atalanta.

"He won't be in a condition to be with us," Zidane said. "I can't say more.

“There are things I can't explain… I hope, because I'm always positive, that it isn't too much.

"Something is going on. He's a player who had never been injured in his career, or not many times. It's new for him. I can't explain more.

“We want him to be well, we want to help, and I hope he'll be with us again soon.

"The fans will have to wait. We know the player he is. We want to see Eden Hazard play – the club, the players, the coach, the staff – but right now he can't do what he wants to do. We'll be patient."

Hazard had missed six weeks with a thigh problem before his return at the weekend.
