Los Blancos shot-stopper hopes his compatriot will find his feet in the Santiago Bernabeu soon after a hard time
Thibaut Courtois backed Eden Hazard, who was able to “explode” for Real Madrid after his unfortunate injury run.

“Danger? I have no doubt, I hope we see the best Eden risk,” the goalkeeper said. SER string On Wednesday.
“He’s primary with the desire to show it. I see him well and I hope he can prove it soon.
“Shortly before his injury, he played a lot of games where he had such misfortune that it was not easy to get out of it. But now this month I have seen him well. I’m sure he will not explode at any time. It will give the team a lot of joy.”
Cordois came to Madrid from Chelsea in 2018 and struggled initially, but he has returned to his form.
The 28-year-old coach paid tribute to Zinedine Zidane for his continued support.
“Zidane has given me so much confidence, I always felt that he trusted me, and that’s important,” Cordois said.
“During those difficult moments at the beginning of last year, if you didn’t feel like the coach was with you, it would be hard.”
