Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has urged Eden Hazard to have faith in order to get his way back into the first team.
Hazard joined Madrid from Chelsea in June 2019 for a reported fee of 120 million euros but has been hampered by injuries and poor form at Los Blancos.
Carlo Ancelotti urged Hazard to follow the example of Mariano Diaz who made his first appearance of the season in Saturday’s 2-1 La Liga win over Elche and was an influential presence, setting up the first goal.
“Those who don’t play need to have faith. Look at Mariano, how he finally got his chance and is enjoying himself, playing good. That’s what Hazard needs to do,” Ancelotti told a news conference on Tuesday ahead of the clash at the Bernabeu.
The Belgian scored four goals in 21 appearances in all competitions last season and has yet to find the net this campaign, with promising Brazilian youngsters Vinicius Jr, 21, and Rodrygo, 20, impressing more with each passing game.
