Real Madrid offered advice to get best from Hazard

Jean-Michel Vandamme is baffled by Real Madrid's treatment of Eden Hazard.

Vandamme discovered Hazard as a junior player and believes Hazard may need to leave Real if his problems with form and fitness continue.

He told AS: "I'm sure he can still succeed at Real Madrid. The problem with Hazard is that he needs to feel like a leader, but I don't mean a locker room leader, but mostly a technical leader. He must think that he is important in the mechanics of the game, Eden must be given the key to the game. He needs it.

"Otherwise, he will end up leaving Madrid. It's not about forcing (Carlo) Ancelotti or another trainer to change the system for him. In Belgium, Hazard continues to perform and he does it alongside another very important player like (Kevin) De Bruyne, they do not deprive each other of space, they complement each other. I don't know why this can't happen for him in Madrid, it shouldn't be a problem because there are his teammates, like (Karim) Benzema, who are specially made to understand each other.

"They can bring a lot to each other "
