Zinedine Zidane , Real Madrid coach, said that it is a "setback" the worsening of Eden Hazard , that by an incomplete perimaleolar microfissure will no longer play in 2019 and the Camp Nou classic will be lost, at a time when he stood out " demonstrating its quality. "

"It is very bad news because he is a player who has shown in recent games how important he is and that he will be in the future of our team," Zidane acknowledged in his appearance before the media in the sports city of Real Madrid .

"I do not like having injured and especially Eden who was already recovering his game, in great shape and demonstrating its quality as he had already done in France or England . He already did it with Real Madrid, it is a setback and I hope it does not last long "he added.

Hazard's first tests did not show an edema the injury suffered by the Belgian. "It is a little more serious than expected," Zidane said he hopes "to return quickly" with the team and can start the year normally, recovered for the Spanish Supercup dispute.

The Madrid coach also regretted the new injuries of the Brazilian Marcelo and the Welshman Gareth Bale . "I don't want anyone out of the team because of injury. They are important casualties but we can't do anything, there are other players and we have to think that we are fine and continue with those who are for tomorrow's game."

Zidane explained the moment of Bale's injury and the sensations of the Welsh end, who works on the grass but outside the group. He will not be against Espanyol and in principle he will not be forced against Bruges in the Champions League as there is nothing at stake.

"It occurs in the Alavés game because then we had two and a half days, but on the way back he resented discomfort. That is why he has not trained all week with us, today he has done a little but could not train normally," sentenced.

"I am not going to prevent anything from Gareth or any player. They are older and know what they have to do," said the Frenchman in reference to the ban on playing golf for Wales internationals, including Bale, during the next European Championship of 2020.
