Real Madrid winger, Eden Hazard has welcomed the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti as the new manager ahead of next season. Carlo Ancelotti was named new Los Blancos manager after Zinedine Zidane resigned from his post at the end of this season.

Real Madrid’s recent Galactico signing Hazard has not lived up to the expectations o his 2019 move to the club from Chelsea. Injuries have plagued his career at Real so far but the Belgian is looking to redeem himself under Carlo Ancelotti next season.

“Everyone at Real Madrid knows what Ancelotti has brought to the club,” Hazard told RTBF.

“He won the Champions League with this group and he knows a lot of the players. We know that he is a coach with a lot of experience. He knows the city and the fans. I think we can do great things together.

The Belgian forward had a close relationship with former boss Zinedine Zidane, who resigned on May 27, but he thinks that good times are ahead with Ancelotti, particularly on a personal level.

“I don’t know him personally, but from what I’ve heard of him he’s a very nice person who just wants to win, and that’s what we all want. We’ll have the chance to work together. It’s good news for me.”

Hazard also offered praise to Zidane, who decided to depart at the end of a trophy-less season with Real. 

He added: “It was great to be around him every day as Real Madrid’s coach. To be coached by your idol, there’s nothing better.”

Interestingly, Hazard joined Chelsea in 2013 a year after the Italian coach left his job at the London club and Carlo Ancelotti’s return to Real would mean they work together for the first time.

Eden Hazard will embrace a big season for Real Madrid next season as the club goes through a period of change and the Belgian will have to bring out his A-game if Los Blancos are to win a trophy.
