Real Madrid goalkeeper Courtois: Hazard is well - but he's competing against Vinicius Jr

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois says he hopes Eden Hazard can return to his best form.

Courtois says they need his Belgium teammate at his peak if they're to be successful this season.

He said: "I see him well. Now the injuries are respecting him more and he is training very well. Before Christmas he played two very good games and in San Mamés we saw the usual Hazard. But then there are the decisions of the coach, and if you have Vinicius plugged in, then there is no room for other wingers.

"Each one has to fight in training to earn the position. The other day I think that Hazard played a good game against Elche and we saw him with that initiative to take the ball and go two or three, to create spaces.

"A great Hazard would help us win games and titles."
