Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti speaks on Hazard and Bale situation

Ancelotti believes that both the players lack opportunities where they can contribute to the team because of injuries and they could give a lot to the team with the quality they have. 

Los Blancos boss Carlo Ancelotti has positive thoughts about Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard and says that both the players may contribute fully and can have a better impact in the second half of the season.

Wales star Gareth Bale appeared for the three games initially but couldn’t make it up since August. The Welsh player is sidelined with knee, calf and back injuries. He also contacted COVID-19.

“They both indeed had a lot of setbacks due to injuries and problems,” said the Madrid boss at a press conference on Wednesday. Ancelotti further said, “Bale is back now after a long time, Hazard has been fine for a month and he is physically fit.”

The boss told that both the players lack opportunities where they can contribute for the team because of injuries and they could give a lot to the team with the quality they have.

Eden Hazard, who used to be one of the best Premier League players and a Chelsea legend has been sidelined following multiple ankle injuries. The Belgian attacking midfielder has had not so great impact since he has been signed by the Whites in 2019 for 100 million euros. He did not appear for a single minute at either the semi-final or the final of the tournament Spanish Super Cup with Madrid winning against the Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

Real Madrid defeated rivals Barcelona at the semifinals where Vinicius Jr, Karim Benzema and Fede Valverde contributed to score and power their side to the finals. While Luka Modric and Karim Benzema, who is current La Liga top scorer (along with teammate Vinicius at second), scored at the finals to clinch the title.
