Hazard swapped Chelsea for the Spanish giants last summer for a €100million transfer fee.

However, he has endured a hard debut campaign in Spain that has been impacted by persistent injury issues, limiting him to just 10 La Liga appearances, in which he's scored one goal.

Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard has described his first season at Santiago Bernabeu as rubbish no thanks to recurring injuries.

Eden Hazard has had an injury-hit debut season at Real Madrid, which has led to the Belgian recognising that it has not been how he wanted it to go.

"It's been a season of adaptation". I will be judged on the second one.

"The group is good; it's been a great experience for me".

With only one goal to his name across all competitions, the 29-year-old admits he's just looking forward to next season, despite the coronavirus suspending the league indefinitely during his latest lay-off.

"I've still got four years left on my contract and I hope to be in form".

Hazard, 29, like his Real Madrid teammates is in self-isolation in Madrid after returning from the U.S. and had originally targeted a return to competitive action in time to represent Belgium at Euro 2020, which has now been definitively postponed due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

Hazard is in isolation at his Madrid home - like the rest of the Spanish population - as the country battles an outbreak of coronavirus.

"I'm not saying that I can't catch it, but I'm inside the house", Hazard stated.

"I think it is hard for the fans because they want to see an worldwide tournament every summer, for them it is a shame".

"But I also think that there are priorities in life that mean it had to be cancelled".

"We have people to take care of ourselves". "I'm working a little more".
