PSG fullback Meunier: Hazard collided into me

PSG right-back Thomas Meunier insists he didn't injure Eden Hazard earlier this season.

Meunier says he had no intention of injuring Real Madrid forward Hazard when the two teams played in the Champions League on November 26.

The Belgian's tackle forced his compatriot to miss the next three months, and a subsequent relapse against Levante meant that Hazard was likely to miss the remainder of the remainder of the 2019/20 season, prior to the coronavirus-enforced stoppage of football.

"No, I didn't injure him; he collided into me," Meunier told RTBF Sport.

"It's a nuance."
