Eden Hazard, the hell of empty promises

A risk that he therefore did not want to take either this Saturday, preferring in turn to raise Valverde, Ceballos, Kroos and finally Rüdiger. 5 changes but not a minute of play for Eden Hazard, caulked in his warm-up tracksuit on the bench.

A few days earlier, however, Carlo Ancelotti still managed to distill a glimmer of hope in the mind of the Belgian supporter… who has been waiting for this for months. “Hazard will have a bigger role this season” he hammered, as if trying to convince himself that Hazard is probably worth more than this thankless role of complementary player that he has been giving him for months.

However, nothing helps. Despite the promises, repeated somewhat sadistically by Ancelotti at a press conference, Hazard is not playing. And when we see the results of Real Madrid, we tell ourselves that the situation is not likely to change by tomorrow. Week after week, the Merengues are winning. Skimpy but they win. And therefore give reason to the Italian sorcerer who admits having to “deal with everyone” in its core.

Everyone except Eden Hazard, therefore.

Hazard, who has not played 90 minutes in La Liga since December 2021.

Who runs behind his first tenure since January.

And his first goal since May 2021.

An eternity for a player who would probably just like to chain matches to prove that he can find his best level.
