Rio Ferdinand has shared his thoughts about Eden Hazard’s future at Real Madrid after another nightmarish performance from La Liga giants
Paris Saint-Germain demolished Los Blancos 3-0 at Parc des Princes in their Champions League curtain-raiser, with Angel Di Maria netting a brace against his former side.
It was another disappointing display from Zinedine Zidane’s team, especially from the Belgian forward, who struggled to make any sort of impact whatsoever.
The 28-year-old sealed his long-awaited move to the Bernabeu this summer, but he looks to have picked the worst possible moment to make the switch.
As reported by the British outlet, Daily Mail, Ferdinand fears that Hazard poorly timed his transfer from Chelsea to Real Madrid and that it will negatively affect all parties involved.
“When you go to a new club, especially the size of Real Madrid, you have to earn the right to be the man who gets all the ball.
“He’s got to do something in the training games, in the actual games that he plays.
“I’m fearful for him that he’s gone there at the wrong time.
“This is a team that’s aging, they’re not on their way up, they’ve not got much spark about them at the moment. That is going to affect him and reflect badly on him in the long term.”
Hazard has now made two appearances for Real Madrid across all competitions this season, failing to leave a mark and show why the Madrid titans spent approximately €100 million to bring him in.
