Although Eden Hazard has not yet found his footing in Real Madrid, the club is asking fans to be patient with the former Chelsea midfielder; the season has just started and the player joined a little later because of his muscle injury.
Hazard is beginning October without a single goal or an assist to his name as a Real Madrid player. Something rather rare for him.
And despite being Florentino Perez's star bet, the Belgian star’s brilliance has not shone through yet. Quite the opposite.
In the Madrid derby, his performance was not all that impressive, and in the previous match, in Seville, the only thing that made him stand out was his defensive dedication.
“We trust him, he's close to getting there,” said Zinedine Zidane at the end of the match. Certainly, he will not lose patience with him, especially when he missed the first games by due to an injury sustained in his debut at Balaidos.
But the truth is that several big games have already come and gone, and matches in which the expectations were high for the Belgian to perform.
Moreover, statistics show he has only completed four shots.
It is not the ideal version of Madrid's most expensive signing, whose first order of business is to reconnect with the best version of himself and live up to the expectations of becoming the new idol in the Santiago Bernabeu.
