Real Madrid are ‘greatly worried’ on Eden Hazard injury

Real Madrid are concerned that Eden Hazard’s leg injury is worse than first feared, according to a report in Cadena Cope.

Hazard was withdrawn after 70 minutes after being caught by Paris Saint-Germain defender and his fellow Belgian international teammate Thomas Meunier.

Zinedine Zidane stated in his post-match press conference that he is concerned by the injury but initial tests revealed the injury is not as bad as first feared.

Diario AS then reported the following day that the attacking star will only miss the upcoming games against Alaves and Espanyol but will be fit in time to face both Valencia and Barcelona later in the month.

Hazard had not broken or damaged any muscles with only bruising detected by the tests, meaning that he was thought to be likely to return in under a fortnight.

But the fresh report now states there is ‘great concern’ at the club as Hazard is still using crutches a week after the incident and is in pain when he walks.  

Hazard was replaced by Gareth Bale against the Ligue 1 giants, and the Welsh international is now likely to get further game-time in his absence.
