supported his team-mate,

Eden Hazard

, and said he will be in a good form for

Real Madrid

after he recovers from injury.

Hazard has not played for Madrid in 2020/21 yet because he suffered from a muscle injury just after he was preparing himself for a return after an ankle injury.

The Belgian midfielder was not impressive in his first season in

La Liga

. He had joined the Spanish club for €100 million from Chelsea in 2019.

Madrid's goalkeeper, Courtois, thinks that after a while Hazard can prove his talents at Santiago Bernabeu.

He told Cadena SER on Wednesday, "Hazard? I have no doubt, I am sure we will see the best Eden Hazard."

Courtois also said that he is a good player and can show it soon. The Belgian goalkeeper emphasized that Hazard is training very well and will be effective in the team.

Madrid's goalkeeper praised his coach,

Zinedine Zidane

, for supporting him when he had joined Real Madrid in 2018.

Courtois said, "

Zidane

has given me a lot of confidence. I have always felt that he counted on me and it is important."

He said if

Zidane

had not supported him in the difficult moments of his first season at Real Madrid, the situation would have been difficult for him.

Courtois's save percentage was 65.4 in 2018-19, but it improved to 79.2 last season.

The figure in his four games in 2020/21 is 86.7, which shows his dramatic progress at Madrid.

Real Madrid has the first place in La Liga with 10 points and Cadiz are their next opponent.
