Real Madrid star Hazard laughs off Wenger weighty claims

Real Madrid ace Eden Hazard has laughed off criticism from former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger over his waistline.

Hazard joined Real from Chelsea in the summer for an initial £88.5million fee which will rise to £130m with add-ons.

Wenger has suggested the Belgian began the season overweight.

But Hazard told Sky Sports: "For the last month I've been in good condition with no injuries.

"I'm in good shape. When I'm on the pitch I will always try to do my best, with Real Madrid or Belgium. I just want to keep this momentum."
