Courtois backs Hazard to explode at Real Madrid after injury woes

Hazard: Courtois backs compatriot to "explode" at Real Madrid - AS.com

Thibaut Courtois backed Eden Hazard to eventually “explode” for Real Madrid after his luckless injury run. Hazard is yet to make an appearance for Madrid this season, having suffered a muscle injury just as he neared a return from an ankle issue. The playmaker struggled to have much of an impact for the LaLiga giants in his first season following his arrival for a reported €100million (£86m) from Chelsea last year. “Hazard? I have no doubt, I am sure we will see the best Eden Hazard,” the goalkeeper told Cadena SER on Wednesday. “He is the first with the desire to show it. I see him very well and hopefully soon he can prove it. “Just before his injury, he played several games very well and there he had such bad luck and getting out of that was not easy. “But now this month I saw him train very well. I am sure that in no time he will explode and will to give many joys to the team.” Courtois arrived at Madrid from Chelsea in 2018 and also struggled initially, but he has turned his form around. The 28-year-old paid tribute to coach Zinedine Zidane for continuing to back him. “Zidane has given me a lot of confidence. I have always felt that he counted on me and it is important,” Courtois said. “In those difficult moments at the beginning of last year, if you don’t feel that the coach is with you, it becomes difficult.”
