Eden Hazard reveals he needs ‘more fitness’ ahead of Real Madrid return despite stunning Zidane with body transformation – The Sun

REAL MADRID forward Eden Hazard has stated he still needs to work on his fitness as he looks to be ready to fire on all cylinders once football in Spain resumes.

LaLiga chiefs are hoping for matches to get back underway in the coming weeks, though there has been no official date on when fixtures can go ahead.

The postponement of the season as a result of the Covid-19 crisis came at a good time for Hazard, who had ankle surgery in March and was expected to be out for around two months.

Hazard – who arrived at the club a stone overweight – has flattered to deceive since his initial £88million move from Chelsea last summer.

He has chipped in with just one goal and five assists in 15 games in all competitions, with injuries limiting his game time at the Bernabeu.

But he is determined to finish the season off strongly, with the former Lille star stunning fans with his new physique when he reported for training last week.

Even his boss Zinedine Zidane is claimed to have been impressed with his body transformation, with the 29-year-old vowing to lay off the buns.

And now Hazard – who has been out of action since February 22 – has announced that he aiming to be fully fit once the campaign resumes.

In a clip Real posted on their Twitter account, he said: "Very good to be back on the pitch to work with the boys.

"We now just have to wait for the games but I'm very happy.
