“I think I should call Carlo Ancelotti because what is happening with Eden Hazard is not fair, I am not joking! Hazard has a great mentality and things will get better, it’s a pity to have a player of his value not playing,” Dries Mertens has told DH les Sports Plus.
“This is football, I have seen that Hazard is healthy and physically fit, the relationship between the Belgian FA and Real Madrid is good, we know he is doing extra work to stay as fit as possible, Hazard wants to do his best to reach his best level.”
Mertens and Hazard play together for the national team. Besides, Dries played under Ancelotti during the coach’s stage at Napoli so they know each other.
Finally, Eden has played 415 minutes across 11 matches for Real Madrid, recording an assist. The 30-year-old started in six of those matches.
