Real Madrid player, Eden Hazard has come out to say that he knows he must still do a lot more to be regarded as a “Galactico.”
The Belgian joined Madrid in pre-season from Chelsea in a deal that could reportedly cost up to €140 million (£124m/$153m) but a thigh injury he suffered in August has affected his start.
To make matters worse, he had just one shot off-target shot and one key pass as Real Madrid were thrashed 3-0 vs PSG.
Hazard has now said that he is also aware that he is yet to earn the right to be called a “Galactico.”
His words, “I am not yet a galactico, I have to be the one to prove that I can be out on the pitch,”
“We all know the history of the number seven jersey in this club and I have to be the one to prove that I can be the best in the world.
“I want to enjoy myself on the pitch, give the maximum, not only in games but also in training. I don’t doubt myself, I don’t doubt my coach. It’s all a matter of trust.
“I’m confident and sure everything will work out fine.
“The criticism doesn’t affect me. I haven’t noticed much. I know when I work to the fullest, everyone expects me to score three goals in each match.
“I think I can do better, I am also critical of myself, but working every day. Maybe I have a little delay because of the injury, but I am 100 per cent.
“I now have to demonstrate my level and improve so the fans are proud of me.”
