I told Hazard he doesn't need to play - Luka Modric

I told Hazard he doesn't need to play - Luka Modric

Real Madrid number 10 Luka Modric has revealed the advice he gave to former Chelsea man Eden Hazard who joined the Spanish giant last season.

Eden Hazard endured a difficult first season in Madrid as he spent most of time on the side line due to injury.

The highly rated Belgien International only managed one goal in 22 appearances for the La Liga Champions and many fans weren't happy about it as they expected more from him.

Speaking with AFP, Modric has now revealed the advice he gave the former Chelsea man during the season and what he expect from him in the coming season.

"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 said

"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."
