Club Brugge keeper Mignolet backing Hazard for Real Madrid success

Club Brugge goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is backing Belgium teammate Eden Hazard for success with Real Madrid.

Hazard has only featured in four games across all competitions so far this season and he is yet to send the ball into the back of the net.

"He is a world star, I know the quality he has and how he can play at the highest level," Mignolet said ahead of their Champions League meeting.

"Now he is in a new team and needs time, but I am sure he will succeed and will be a star at Real Madrid."

The Belgian goalkeeper also believes that Thibaut Courtois has what it takes to be a Real Madrid shotstopper.

"[Courtois'] last weeks have been difficult after the Paris Saint-Germain game, but he has returned to his level," Mignolet added.

"He is a world class goalkeeper who always demonstrates his virtues.

"He has all the qualities to be Real Madrid's goalkeeper."
