Eden Hazard has revealed that his first year at Real Madrid was “bad”, but insists he needs to be judged from next season.
Hazard swapped Chelsea for the Spanish giants last summer for a €100million transfer fee.
But the Belgium captain has struggled to make an impact at the Bernabeu because of persistent injury.
Hazard has only scored once and provided five assists in 15 appearances in all competitions.
“My first season at Madrid is bad, but not everything is bad,” the 29-year-old told RTBF.
“It is an adaptation season. I will be judged in the second. It is up to me to be in good shape next year.
“I still have four years of contract, I hope be in good shape.”
