Eden Hazard has expressed delight in Zinedine Zidane's return to Real Madrid but refused to talk about his intended move to Spain.

The French manager won three consecutive Champions League titles before resigning barely days after their 2018 triumph in Kiev.

Los Blancos employed Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari which saw Madrid crash out of La Liga race, Copa del Rey and the Champions League.

And the 1998 World Cup winner returned to the Santiago Bernabeu for his second stint as Los Blancos boss.

And Hazard said he is pleased to see Zidane return to football management, citing how good it is for football and the club’s supporters.

“I am not a Real Madrid player but as a supporter of Zidane, I was very happy that he came back because football needs Zidane,” Hazard told RMC Sport.

“For Real it is good, for the supporters of Real it is good.

“But for the other teams, a bit less because Real Madrid with Zinedine Zidane win a lot, so it will be difficult.”

Hazard refused to discus his future as the Blues are chasing a Champions League spot – either through the Premier League top four or the Europa League success.

“My future is not something that I want to talk about right now,” Hazard added.

“There are rumours left and right but for me, I have another month with Chelsea. And the end of the season it could be wonderful if we win the Europa League and qualify for the Champions League for next year.

“We will have to give our all and after that we will see what will happen.”

The 28-year-old came off the bench to help Chelsea secure a 1-0 away to Slavia Prague in their first leg Europa League quarter final fixture.
