The 2021/22 season begins with an unknown: Eden Hazard. The Belgian entered his first year as a star, but his weight and physical condition were disappointing, leading to injury after injury. The second was already anticipated as a disappointment, nothing seemed to have changed around the end. This August will begin the third year since Eden Hazard arrived at Real Madrid and this time yes, because the third time lucky, It must be the season in which Hazard, once and for all, shines in the white team.
The spectator will believe that affirming something like this is audacious, that nothing has changed and there is no indication to ensure that Eden Hazard will change, that luck will turn and that Real Madrid will be able to enjoy their plays on the left wing. He is wrong, yes there is; we have seen it in the Eurocup.
Eden Hazard’s Euro Cup was not spectacular in terms of football, but it did change the feelings. The Belgian suffered and received blows, but he got up again and continued fighting to offer his best version. For the first time in two years, it has given symptoms of being able to overcome both the injury and the psychological block That prevents you from going all out in one-on-one. It is the first step for the new Hazard, the one who must succeed at Real Madrid.
Carlo Ancelotti will also have to play an important role. The Italian has to motivate him, give him security and manage the minutes. Do not pressure or force him, let him grow little by little, make him feel like a footballer again and trust his conditions. Ancelotti’s experience supports him as a technician prepared to achieve this. Thus, it will be the Hazard year.
