Canizares was speaking after Real's Supercopa de Espana semifinal defeat to Athletic Bilbao.
It's not Hazard's moment," Canizares said on Radio Cope.
"Asensio had to be playing on the left and priority should be given to the players who are in form. Not starting Hazard in the centre and then changing it because it doesn't work..."
Former Real striker Pedja Mijatovic also said: "Hazard shouldn't be starting, but the one who decides and sees him in training is Zidane.
"Real Madrid also play well without him, and that's the worrying thing."
