Eden Hazard was furious because he often warmed the bench at Real Madrid . Hazard insists he wants more opportunities to appear.
Since joining Madrid in June 2019, Eden Hazard has struggled to show his magical touch. The injury storm made the 31-year-old player spend more time in the treatment room.
According to Transfermarkt , a series of injuries kept Eden Hazard out of action for 480 days and missed Real Madrid ‘s 72 games .
Entering the 2022/2023 season, Eden Hazard’s condition has recovered 100 percent. However, he struggled to get a place in the Real Madrid first team. So far, Hazard has only appeared in four games, and scored one goal plus one assist.
Of the four matches with Real Madrid , Eden Hazard has only started twice, namely against Celtic in the Champions League and meeting Real Mallorca in La Liga.

Eden Hazard admits that he is currently experiencing difficult times at Real Madrid . He also felt annoyed because he was more often used as a spare tire than playing with Madrid.
“There were difficult times because I wanted to play all the time and I didn’t play. I’m happy with Real Madrid, I just played less,” Hazard said.
“When I play I play well. It is a complicated situation because I want to play more often.”
