ANCELOTTI IDENTIFIES 31-YEAR-OLD FLOP AS BENZEMA’S BACKUP THIS SEASON

 

 

Eden Hazard’s transfer to Real Madrid has been nothing short of disastrous. The Belgian international was one of the best in his position at the time of his move but failed to have any impact on his new club. His involvement in the team has been minimal over the past few seasons. However, it is said that Hazard has returned to training in better physical condition this season, and Ancelotti is looking to capitalise on his services.

According to reports from El Chiringuito, Ancelotti trusts Hazard to recover his best form. Further, he has decided that the former Chelsea player will be Karim Benzema’s substitute for the upcoming season. The world got to see this plan in action in Real Madrid’s first preseason game over Barcelona. With their French striker unavailable, Hazard started as the centre-forward on the night.

Chelsea were at the summit but the recent run has seen them plummet to ninth spot on the Premier League standings. Continue reading HAZARD WANTED BACK AT CHELSEA
