Arbeloa says Hazard returned to Real Madrid in great shape

Alvaro Arbeloa says Eden Hazard has returned to Real Madrid training in great shape.

The former Spanish international, who will be Real Madrid U19's head coach from next season, has been impressed with the Belgian's performances in training.

"I imagine that, with Marco [Asensio], there will have to be more care, giving him minutes little by little," he told Real Madrid TV.

"You have to be more careful with him than with Eden [Hazard], who has returned like an airplane.

"He is going to win us many games."

Ahead of Real Madrid's return to LaLiga Santander action, Arbeloa doesn't think Zinedine Zidane will tinker too much with his line-up.

"I think there won't be many changes in this first eleven, but then [Zidane] will make three or four changes in each game," he noted.

"The Zidane method will return for sure."
