But the €100m winger is back in Real’s matchday squad for the first time this season ahead of the go to of Real Valladolid to the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium.

“Hazard didn’t lack professionalism. He’s had a big issue. The ankle has bothered him for a long time. He’s the first who wants to be okay,” Zidane said at his pre-match media briefing.

By Zidane’s reckoning, Hazard is ‘very close’ to making his return to motion.

“He’s training with the team and the only thing is that we know he hasn’t trained much so far. He’s training regularly with us and he’s fine. Then we’ll look at how we’re going to do it. He wants to play and not to be bothered by it. That’s the most important thing because it’s a very long season.”
