Real Madrid coach Zidane happy to get Hazard back on pitch

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says Eden Hazard will be stronger for his run out against Villarreal.

Hazard started in Real's midfield for the 1-1 draw.

Zidane said, "He's here, he's played, its true that he's not played for a long time and in a match you have to manage the minutes well.

"But he's involved and he's fine."

The coach added: "We dropped two points. We have to praise my players, they did well, we controlled the game and in one move they equalised. That can happen in football."
