Hazard trains and could be back for derby
The right leg injury that Eden Hazard picked up against PSG on 26th November had Real Madrid on tenterhooks. The Belgian missed important matches such as the 'Clásico' against Barca and the 2 Spanish Super Cup matches.
But the good news has finally arrived for the Real Madrid forward. If on Monday he was seen doing sprints at the training ground, on Thursday he took one more step in his recovery process by training for the first time with a ball.
However, the winger trained alone, For now, his process requires specific preparation, but there is no doubt that training with the ball is an obvious step towards full recovery.
Both the forward and Real Madrid have a match on the horizon: the derby against Atlético on 1st February (16:00 CET). The newspaper 'AS' assures that this is the date that both Zidane and the coaching staff are working towards for the Belgian's return.
Another player training alone after his injury was Sergio Ramos. The captain trained with and without the ball, although he is a doubt for the Valladolid match. On the other hand, Asensio joined Hazard in the recovery training.
