Belgium coach Martinez tells Real Madrid fans: Don't doubt Hazard

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has jumped to the support of Eden Hazard.

The Belgium captain has struggled to find his best form at Real Madrid since his summer arrival from Chelsea.

But Martinez says: "I'm not worried at all. Eden is one of the best players in the world. It's just a matter of adaptation. He always thinks about the team. He's adapting to the team a bit. He's a team player and that understanding is missing with the players around him.

"The relationship between Eden and (Zinedine) Zidane is perfect. He will adapt and be a great player for Real Madrid.

"Eden is a player who lives one on one, but those situations depend on the rest of the players too.

"Eden always plays and is not used to dealing with situations of injuries. He's very self-critical and he doesn't like to look for excuses. This anxiety around him is going to help him a lot and he'll certainly reach a great level."
