Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard has been backed by his teammate and former Tottenham star Luka Modric to find his best form this season.

Hazard is having a difficult time in Madrid since his £130m move from Chelsea. The winger has been struck by injuries since his arrival but Modric has no doubt he will find his form if injury permits.

“It’s not a comfortable situation for Hazard,” he told El Partidazo de Cope: as quoted by TalkSport.

“He’s amazing, he’s going to prove it. Only injuries can prevent him going forward. When he’s been fit, he’s shown he’s important, it’s a shame. We need him.

“Hazard is one of the best in the world, he is incredible, and I am sure he will show it this year if injuries do not prevent it. Last season he already showed that he was important until injuries stopped him. It goes to show why Madrid paid so much for him.”
