Real Madrid’s Eden Hazard admits he has not reached his full potential since his £89m move from Chelsea and cannot yet be considered a Galactico.
Hazard has made just four appearances this season after a thigh injury delayed his debut, one of them being in a 3-0 defeat at Paris Saint-Germain.
The Belgian Player, Hazard was again left frustrated in Real’s 0-0 draw against rivals Atletico Madrid on Saturday, failing to make an impact in the 77 minutes he played before being substituted.
“I’m not yet a Galactico,” Hazard said, ahead of his first Champions League game at the Bernabeu against Club Brugge on Tuesday.
“I have to be the one to prove that I can become one, Hazard Said.
“We know very well the last No 7 at this club [Cristiano Ronaldo] and I have to be the first to prove that I can be the best in the world, enjoy myself on the pitch, give everything in training and matches.
“I don’t doubt my abilities or my technique and the more I gain confidence, everything will be better.
“When we start a competition, we want to win it: Champions League, league, cup – when you play for Real Madrid, all we want and have in our mind is to win.”
