Former Real Madrid star Clarence Seedorf feels Eden Hazard lacks the required motivation to succeed at the Bernabeu.
The Belgian international joined the Los Blancos for a record £100m from Chelsea last season but has failed to live up to expectation at the club, having to endure an injury disrupted first season in Spain in 2019-20, despite picking up a La Liga winners medal in July.
“I have always said that Hazard can be up there with the best players in the world,” he told an interview with Goal.com. “But is a question of motivation, is he motivated to do that?”
Hazard has not featured for Zinedine Zidane’s side so far this season, as the team battle against a growing injury crisis in the opening weeks of the campaign.
After the international break, Real Madrid will return to action at home to newly promoted Cadiz and Zidane could be without up to seven first team stars including Hazard, Marco Asensio and Dani Carvajal.
