Real Madrid found encouraging news related to the current condition of their new star, Eden Hazard. The Belgian midfielder recently underwent surgery in the United States, and is proceeding smoothly.
Eden Hazard, 28, joined Real Madrid after being bailed out of Chelsea for 100 Million Euros last summer. But since setting foot in the Santiago Bernabeu, he has rarely played.
First, what disturbed his debut season with Real Madrid was fitness. Then in November, Hazard suffered a hamstring injury. He was absent until just playing in early February.
Unfortunately, when he only played in two matches, Hazard returned to the side to pull over. In the duel against Levante on February 22, Hazard played as a starter for the first time since recovering from injury, but could not play the full 90 minutes.
He was pulled out when the game has been running for 60 minutes. After the match, a medical test is carried out. The result, there is a crack on the fibula bone in the ankle area of his right leg.
Of course, the player’s condition is very disappointing for Real Madrid who actually need additional players on the front lines.
But now, there is the latest news about the condition of the Belgian player. Hazard’s operation in Dallas, United States was successful. Now only the recovery process that must be passed by ex Chelsea.
“Eden Hazard has successfully underwent surgery to crack his right leg fibula today [5/3/2020] in Dallas. The operation was overseen by the Real Madrid medical team. At this time Hazard will remain under surveillance until he gets the green light to undergo the rehabilitation process, “said the official statement of Real Madrid.
What worries me is the postoperative recovery period. Real Madrid did not explain how long Hazard needed to pull over for the recovery period.
But clearly, Belgian national team coach Roberto Martinez said that Hazard needed three months for recovery after surgery. However, there is optimism that Hazard will be able to return to playing at the end of this season, and continue to play at Euro 2020.
Hazard himself has only played 15 matches in all competitions this season since joining from Chelsea last summer.
