Eden Hazard reveals why he struggled when he left Chelsea for Real Madrid

Eden Hazard has admitted he was overweight when he joined Real Madrid last summer.

Hazard left Chelsea after seven successful seasons and signed for Los Blancos in a deal worth over £100million.

The 28-year-old, however, endured a slow start to his career at the Bernabeu, scoring his first goal after six appearances.

Hazard told L’Equipe: “It’s true. I’m not going to hide it, but when I’m on vacation, I’m on vacation.

“I had put on five kilos, I’m the type to put on quickly and lose so quickly if I’m careful.

“When I was 18, in Lille, I was 72 or 73 kg. Muscle mass was 75 kg, on a bad day, 77 kg. I was 80 kg this summer, I lost it in 10 days.”
