Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has denied rumors linking Hazard with another injury during his recovery.

Hazard, who has been sidelined since early February due to a muscle problem, is recovering to prepare for the Champions League clash with Atalanta, however Spanish media reported yesterday that he was injured again.

Zidane said about

Hazard

: “

There is no relapse. We want him to be 100 per cent when he can return

.

”This is what he is doing, little by little, without haste.

"We know how important he is in our team, but we have to go with how he feels. It is important that, when he returns, he feels strong and 100 per cent.

"We are not going to risk anything on his return. He is progressing very well, and I hope that next week maybe he can be with us for good.”

Hazard joined Real Madrid from Chelsea in the summer of 2019, but never repeated his brilliant performance in London.

He played in only 26 games last season due to a hamstring and ankle injury. But things have gotten worse for the Belgian midfielder this season as he has played just 13 games due to several muscle injuries and the Coronavirus..
