Real Madrid forward Eden Hazard said he needed to improve to live up to his ‘Galactico’ billing after a slow start to the season, having failed to score or assist for his new side.
The Belgian winger joined from Chelsea this summer for 100 million euros ($109.07 million) as the marquee signing in the club’s overhaul after a disastrous 2018-19 campaign.
Hazard is viewed as the replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo in Madrid’s side, with the team’s all-time top scorer departing for Juventus in the summer of 2018, and has inherited his No. 7 shirt.
“I’m not a Galactico yet, I have to show that I can be one,” Hazard said
