The next expected date of Hazard’s return was the beginning of January and the Spanish Super Cup. However, the rehabilitation proceeded at a slow pace, so only at the end of the month did Belgian return to full training with the team. Nothing prevents the former Chelsea FC player from appearing in the Madrid derby of Atletico on Saturday.
