Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard hasn’t had it easy since he left Chelsea for a big money move to Real Madrid.
Last season, it was a lack of form and injury issues, and his injury issues continued to this season.
Hazard recently returned to form and fitness and got a goal in his last match, only for him to test positive to Covid-19 before this weekend’s round of matches.
Real Madrid released a statement on Saturday to confirm that the former Chelsea winger and also Casemiro tested positive for coronavirus.
In a statement on their website, the La Liga giants said: “Real Madrid C.F. informs that our players, Casemiro and Eden Hazard, have tested positive in the COVID-19 tests undertaken yesterday, Friday, in the morning.”
When addressing the media this weekend, Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane revealed that Hazard was not happy with the situation.
Zidane said: “They’re both good. They’re obviously not happy about what has happened. But, mentally, they’re good. Physically, they have a few things, but they’re well. I’ve exchanged messages with them and will talk with them again later.
“This can happen and we have to accept it. We have to adapt to the situation. It could be worse. Many people are having a tough time with this.
“But, it’s true that it’s concerning and it’s tough when you have a different training session like this.”
