1. Eden Hazard
I am sorry to break it to you but I still have faith in Eden hazard, albeit less than before. We must accept that even though the fans have endured a lot over the past three years, Hazard has also faced challenges.
I don’t want to turn this into a “let’s empathise with Hazard” piece, but it must be difficult for a player to witness himself transform into a version of himself he never wanted to see.
The Belgian has two years left on his deal, and this is likely his last chance to prove himself. During the Cibeles celebrations, Hazard assured the fans that he will unleash the greatest version of himself, and unlike previous statements, this one has some weight.
Several months ago, the 31-year-old underwent surgery to remove the plate in his ankle, following which he feels a lot better and more free than before, hinting that a resurrection season is on the way.

Hazard’s task now is to uphold the commitment he made to the supporters and fully establish his value at the Bernabeu. We are left with no choice except to wait and continue to hold out hope for him, for the last time. The season 2022/23 awaits.
