Eden Hazard was unarguably seen as the best player in the Premier League before his much famed move to Spanish giants, Real Madrid.

Hazard left Chelsea after seven years, for what was his dream move, as the Los Blancos paid big money to sign him.

Unfortunately, it didn’t work out too well for Hazard in his first season at the club, and he scored only one goal all season, as he struggled with form and fitness.

Teammate Luka Modric, has now urged Hazard to be at his best next season, and warned that it’s going to be difficult for him next season, if he doesn’t get back his form.

“Eden is a great guy and a special player, but he was playing with pain and when you’re on the pitch, people always expect the best. They don’t care if you have little problems,” Modric told AFP.

“I spoke to him and said, ‘Eden maybe you need not to play now and recover because next season we need you at your best. This is a season where you’re getting to know everything but next season you need to be 100 per cent because if not, it’s going to be difficult’.

“Hopefully he comes back without any problems and then I’m sure he’ll show his potential and why the club bought him because we will need him a lot.”
