'He needs to be 100 per cent… if not, it's going to be difficult': Eden Hazard warned by Real Madrid team-mate Luka Modric over living up to his billing as he reveals he told Belgian to sit out games to be fit for this season

Luka Modric has called for Real Madrid team-mate Eden Hazard to show his true form this season following a poor first year at the Bernabeu.

Hazard was one of the high profile moves during the summer transfer window of 2019 when he moved from Chelsea to Madrid for £150million.

But a series of injuries restricted the playmaker to just 22 games in all competitions, netting one goal and providing seven assists.

However he was ruled out of a further 24 games due to a series of injuries, mainly a hairline fracture in the foot throughout the winter.

Modric though sympathises with the 29-year-old, claiming he was trying too hard to play through his injury,  

‘Eden is a great guy and a special player, but he was playing with pain and when you’re on the pitch, people always expect the best. They don’t care if you have little problems,’ Modric told AFP.
