Real Madrid director Butragueno: Hazard scored an extraordinary goal

Real Madrid director Emilio Butragueno says management are delighted for Eden Hazard after his goalscoring performance in victory over Huesca.

Hazard struck on Saturday in his first LaLiga appearance of the season.

Butragueno later said: "Hazard's goal was extraordinary, with the second goal we were more relaxed at half-time and we played the second half with more calm.

"The non celebrations of Eden? He is a player of the highest international level, he has had bad luck since he arrived in Madrid and what he wants is to always be on the pitch. Hopefully the injuries are over for him.

"(Karim) Benzema? He plays football very well, he scored two goals, but he does not stand out only in this sense. He plays well with others, almost all the attacking game goes through him."
