The length of time Eden Hazard will be unavailable for Real Madrid

There has been confirmation from Real Madrid on a fresh injury suffered by Eden Hazard.

Hazard came on for a late cameo appearance in the clash in La Liga against Elche this weekend after a two-month layoff but now has suffered another fitness setback and sat out training on Monday.

A Madrid statement today read: “Following tests carried out today on our player, Eden Hazard, by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with a muscle injury in the right psoas. His recovery will continue to be assessed.”

Whilst no timeframe has put on the Belgian’s return to action – as is customary from Madrid, who detail the medical specifics without any potential return dates – it is suggested that such an injury can rule a player out for a month and up to six weeks in worrying Real Madrid news.

Hazard had missed the last six weeks of action with a thigh muscle injury while he has been hampered by fitness problems across his time in Spain, limiting him to just 20 starts in the league from a possible 65.

The former Chelsea star has been beset by injury issues since his move to Madrid in 2019 and he has played just 14 matches in total this campaign.
