Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has said Eden Hazard has been passed fit and will make his long-awaited La Liga debut against Levante on Saturday.
“We all want to see Eden,” said Zidane told reporter. “There´s a lot of pressure on him, a lot of expectation. But he is ready and that is the most important thing.”
The Belgium star was expected to make his debut in Vigo in the opening round in mid-August after joining Madrid for an initial 100 million euros from Chelsea in June.
But the striker pulled up with a thigh strain at the club´s training base in Valdebebas and had to sit out the first three weeks of the season during which Real struggled, collecting one win and two draws.
