Eden Hazard looks set to make his official Real Madrid debut on Saturday, but Zinedine Zidane admits they have to be careful with the Belgian winger.
The Belgian was Los Blancos’ big-money signing in the off-season, but he has been sidelined with a thigh injury since pre-season.
The former Chelsea star returned to full training during the international break and has been included in the travelling squad.
However, Zidane reveals Hazard will only be given cameos in the upcoming weeks as he works his way back to full fitness.
“Regarding Hazard, we have to go little by little,” Zidane said, as per ESPN.
“He has been injured for three weeks. He was back training this week. We have to go carefully with him. We know what the situation is, he is ready and that’s the most important thing.
“I will give him minutes here and there, not trying to push him too much to get the best out of him. We have seven games in 21 days and we need to use our heads with Hazard.”
