Zinedine Zidane, the head coach of Real Madrid, has spoken out for Eden Hazard and Toni Kroos, all of whom are suffering from injuries.
“We don’t have any proposals for Hazard. We would not compel his recovery. We’re taking things one step at a time,” Zidane told Marca.
“I don’t know when we’ll see him on the pitch. It’s good if it occurs in three days. If it is within 10 days, it is also appropriate. We are glad that things are looking up.
Kroos remained at the club and trained with us. We need not waste time when we have plenty more matches to play. We’ll see how we react in this case. The most important thing is your health.
I would prefer that all of my players are well, but that is not the case. All are vital. We have ten matches left in the championship; we must focus on that.”
Azar and Kroos have been confirmed to be training in Real Madrid’s general community and may appear in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool on April 6.
