Real Madrid coach Zidane: Injuries not weighing on Hazard

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane insists Eden Hazard remains upbeat despite his injury woes.

Repeated injuries do take their psychological toll on a player, especially when they finally got their dream move to Real Madrid, only to be unable to contribute or even settle into the team due to repeated ailments.

"Is he stressed? No, he's very strong mentally," Zidane confirmed in Monday's pre-match press-conference.

"Hazard has been screwed by bad luck, but injuries are occurring at every single club.

"He's strong, I have no doubts about Hazard and the player that he is, I hope he will soon be back with us."
