‘Next year I am going to give you my all’: Eden Hazard promises Real Madrid fans that he will come good at Champions League victory parade – as £118m man looks to impress after fitness and injury problems since move from Chelsea three years ago

  • Eden Hazard has underwhelmed since his high-profile move from Chelsea 
  • The Belgian moved to the club in 2019 but injuries have blighted him in Madrid
  • He is estimated to have missed around 70 games at the club through injury  

Eden Hazard has promised fans of Real Madrid that they will see the best version of him next season. 

The Belgian, who moved to the club in 2019 from Chelsea to much fanfare in a multi-million pound deal, has underwhelmed so far in his time in the Spanish capital with fitness concerns and injury problems blighting his time there.

Hazard was an unused substitute as Real Madrid triumphed 1-0 over Liverpool thanks to Vinicius Junior’s second-half strike as Los Blancos claimed their 14th Champions League crown.

Taking the microphone at the parade, Hazard told the adoring Real Madrid fans: ‘Madridistas, I’ve been here for three years with many injuries, with many things. But next year I’m going to give it all for you,’

The former Chelsea man clearly enjoyed himself at the parade, being photographed sipping from what appeared to be a beer on the parade bus. 

Marca, the Madrid-based Spanish publication, reported that Hazard’s asking for the microphone took every aback after the likes of Marcelo, Carlo Ancelotti and Karim Benzema had already spoken to the crowd.

He was mobbed by his team-mates after he finished speaking, with reports in Spain suggesting this is indicative of a player who is well-liked and respected within the dressing room. 

It had been believed, Marca also report, that Hazard was likely to depart the club this summer but they say that that is no longer true and the club are pleased he wants to remain to try and pay back the faith shown in him. 

Prior to Saturday’s Paris final, Hazard spoke about his recent ankle surgery and his and the medical team’s belief that it was the right decision for him not to rush back to playing too quickly.

He told Het Laatse Nieuws: ‘The surgery went well. Everything is going well at the moment.’

‘I didn’t want to go too fast like last time. The coach understood my situation, as did the medical staff. We have worked well. Now I feel really good.  

‘I am ready just in time to play a part in the Champions League final. I am desperate to show everyone what I can do.’

He continued: ‘The coach knows that I still have a contract until 2024. My first three seasons at Real have not gone well.

‘It has always been a dream to play for Real. It still is.’

Despite not playing in the Champions League final, Hazard, who is the most expensive Belgian player of all time, will hope next season he can hit the ground running in the famous white shirt of Madrid.

With the club having missed out on Kylian Mbappe, players such as Hazard now appear to have the opportunity to fill the void left by the Frenchman’s decision to remain at Paris Saint Germain.
