Madrid a more bigger club – Zidane mocks Chelsea over Hazard’s transfer
Zinedine Zidane says former Chelsea star, Eden Hazard “needed a club like Real Madrid”, to showcase his true skills.
Hazard will make his Madrid debut in an International Champions Cup clash against Bayern Munich in Houston.
The 28-year-old penned a five-year deal with the LaLiga club in June, after the Premier League club agreed to his transfer demands.
Zidane, speaking ahead of the pre-season fixture, insisted that the Spanish outfit is a bigger club than Chelsea.
“He’s a decisive player. He scores goals and makes a difference.
“He’s shown that throughout his career and now we have him. We will take advantage of his qualities.
“I’m very happy with him. Eden needed a club like Real Madrid to improve. This club has something special and we all know it.
“When I arrived at Real Madrid, I was 29 and I still had a lot left. I spent five years here as a player and improved things. Eden’s situation is the same.
“We know the type of player he is and that he can give us a lot,” Zidane said
