After taking the club’s number seven jersey, previously worn by Cristiano Ronaldo, Eden Hazard said he is finding hard to cope with high expectation at Real Madrid.
Hazard who was the rave of the moment, arrived from Chelsea in the summer, joining for a fee that could reach as high as £130m
Surprisingly, the expectations of so many people have not been met as the winger has failed to live up to the price-tag in the opening months of his Los Blancos career.
This has led to criticisms from the Real fan base, as well as questions over his mindset. Hazard has scored just one goal, in his seven games for Madrid in all competitions.
The Belgian Star waited until September to make his debut for the La Liga giants due to a hamstring injury he picked up over the off-season.
Speaking to the Real Madrid TV about taking on Ronaldo’s squad number, the 28-year-old said (as quoted by Marca): “Taking this shirt after Cristiano isn’t easy, he’s historic.”
