Eden Hazard vows not to leave Real Madrid as a failure

Hazard joins Real Madrid

Eden Hazard joined Real Madrid in August of 2019, departing long-time club Chelsea, where he had cemented himself as one of the Premier League’s top talents.

Madrid stumped up a fairly hefty sum, believed to be £88.5m, to bring the Belgian to the Spanish capital.

Hazard’s arrival came shortly after Cristiano Ronaldo departed the Bernabeu, with the Real Madrid faithful having no doubt hoped that the left-winger would help to fill the void left by the Portuguese.

‘I won’t leave there as a failure’

However, nearly two years on from his move to Madrid, this has proven far from the case.

To say that Hazard has underwhelmed in Spain would be a huge understatement. So far, he has been forced to deal with 12 separate injury issues.

Upon first arriving at the Bernabeu, the now 30-year-old did not look 100 per cent fit. And he has since been plagued by further fitness woes. Hazard, in turn, has scored just five goals for Real to date.

Despite such struggles, however, the attacker has this weekend vowed that he will not leave the club as a failure:

“I’m only myself when I can enjoy myself on the pitch. That hasn’t happened in the last two years at Madrid.

“If you have one or two injuries you can flip the switch, you recover to come back stronger, but if it’s five, six, seven it’s much more difficult mentally. But I keep going.”

When asked if he has ever contemplated leaving the Spanish capital, the former Chelsea star stated:

“It didn’t occur to me for a second that it would be better for me to leave.

“I won’t leave there as a failure. I only want to show that I’m made for Real Madrid.

“The last two years have been difficult, I’ve been at Madrid without really being at Madrid, you know… We’ve played in a stadium without fans, and I signed to play at a full Bernabeu.”
