Modric announces his confidence in Hazard’s potential alongside retirement plans
Luka Modric has disclosed his belief in his teammate and Belgian star Eden Hazard who is struggling to prove his worth in Real Madrid due to diverse injury problems. Modric believes that Hazard will get back to being fit and prove his incredibility for the club.
The Croatian and Ballon d’Or winner in his confidence in Hazard told El Partidazo de Cope:
Ït’s not a comfortable situation for Hazard. He is amazing, he is going to prove it. Only injuries can prevent him going forward. When he’s been fit, he has shown he’s important, it is a shame. We need him.
“Hazard is one of the best in the world, he is incredible, and I am sure he will show it this year if injuries do not prevent it. Last season he already showed that he was important until injuries stopped him. It goes to show why Madrid paid so much for him.”
It should be recalled that Hazard has only scored a goal for the Blancos since he joined the club in the summer of 2019 and he was recently diagnosed to be down with a muscular injury that came shortly after he recovered from one injury.
In Modric’s statement about his future and plans for football retirement, the 35-year-old said: ”Sure, of course I would like to stay at Real Madrid. It’s not just up to me. I think I still have football to give. I feel like I could play at this level for a couple more years. It also depends on the club and coach. If they see me as important. My wish is to finish the race here, but I also don’t want to be a problem.
“Despite being 35 years old, I feel very good, I feel strong, and I think I can continue at this level. I want to renew, and if possible, finish my career at Madrid.”
