Real Madrid: Roberto Martínez mesmerised by Eden Hazard display against PSG
Belgium coach Roberto Martínez believes Eden Hazard will come good at Real Madrid and said is "was fascinating just watching him against PSG".
Belgium coach Roberto Martínez is convinced that Eden Hazard will blossom into something very special at Real Madrid - judging from what he has seen of the player since he joined his new club. Hazard finally appeared to be rediscovering his form for Madrid before suffering an ankle injury in Tuesday's Champions League draw against Paris Saint-Germain. The former Chelsea forward only has one goal and two assists to show from the 13 games he has taken part in so far this season, but Martínez believes he will come good.
Hazard was "fascinating to watch" against PSG - Martínez
"I saw Eden at the [Santiago] Bernabéu against PSG and I have to say that we saw a fascinating hour," Martínez explained. "He taught us how his season with Real Madrid will be and the truth is that it makes your mouth water. Too bad he had to come off because of the injury, but we see an Eden Hazard that is going to contribute more and more, that his team mates know him more and more and the truth is that the project of Eden at Real Madrid will be very special."
Lukaku on fire at Inter
Martínez was speaking after Belgium were drawn to face Denmark, Finland and Russia in Group B at Euro 2020. Another player sure to be key to possible success for Belgium at next year's tournament is Romelu Lukaku, who has scored 11 goals in 17 games for Inter this season. "The truth is that he had a very difficult period in Manchester United, especially the last six months," Martínez said about the striker. "He is now leading a project with Antonio Conte and it will be very interesting to see its evolution."
