Belgium coach Martinez: Real Madrid signing Hazard will transform Spanish football

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez says Eden Hazard will transform Spanish football.

The former Chelsea star was presented to 50,000 Real Madrid fans on Thursday as their latest Galactico.

"[Hazard] is a stellar signing as there are many talented players who play at Real Madrid, but there are not many who can lead a project at a club like that," Martinez told Radio MARCA.

"Eden Hazard is a person who has innate magic, a perfect personality, a winning attitude for the group and he is an essential player; the best that can be found in world football.

Martinez feels the transfer is not just a win for Real Madrid, but for the league as a whole.

"It is a signing that will change the future of Spanish football," he stated.

"His signing for Madrid was born when he was very young, as it is a dream for him since he admired Zidane.

"They are going to have a very special relationship, with a lot of respect and admiration.

"Zidane is going to give Hazard what he needs and LaLiga has gained a star signing that will change Spanish football."
