Eden Hazard will have surgery on his left ankle in the coming weeks, according to Marca. This would cost him the rest of the season with Real and put his participation in Euro 2016 with Belgium in jeopardy.
Real Madrid’s ordeal with Eden Hazard continues. The striker has a fresh right psoas injury and will miss Tuesday’s Champions League knockout round match against Atalanta Bergamo (9 p.m., live on RMC Sport). It’s possible that if the length of his absence isn’t communicated, it’ll be very long. The Belgian international, according to Marca, will have surgery in the coming weeks. The theory is still being debated, but it seems to be unavoidable.
The former Chelsea player, who joined Real Madrid in 2019, will then have a new operation on his left ankle, which was already operated on in November 2019 after a shock to his compatriot Thomas Meunier during a Champions League match between Real and PSG. Hazard has never fully recovered, and his recurring foot pain has been attributed to a series of muscle injuries since then.
The Lille-trained striker can mask his discomfort by altering his running and walking styles. Danger, who returned to training last weekend after a muscle injury to his left thigh, is feeling pain in the adductor area this time (the psoas connects the lumbar area to the femur). An intervention’s goal will be to adjust or correct the location of the plate that was installed to reinforce his ankle in 2019.
