Eden Hazard, a Real Madrid star, has suffered a new injury and will miss their Club World Cup match against Al Ahly on Wednesday.
Hazard has been diagnosed with patellar tendinosis in his left knee, according to a statement released by Real Madrid on their website over the weekend.
Hazard is clearly unable to recover in time for Real Madrid’s match against Al Ahly.
“According to the results of the tests performed today on Eden Hazard by Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with patellar tendinosis in his left knee and is being monitored,” Real Madrid said in a statement.
Hazard joined Real Madrid from Chelsea in 2019, but his time there has been a disaster.
Under Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti, the Belgian has fallen far down the pecking order due to a combination of injuries and poor form.
Hazard, even when fit, is rarely considered for selection.
