Eden Hazard says first season at Madrid was worst of his career

- Eden Hazard has stated that 2019/20 season was the worst of his career

- The Belgium international was able to score only one goal for Real Madrid

- Hazard joined Real Madrid from Chelsea after winning the Europa League title

Belgian football star Eden Hazard has claimed that the just concluded 2019/20 Spanish La Liga season was the worst term in his career as a professional player.

Although the former Chelsea forward ended up winning the Spanish La Liga title with Real Madrid, but the Bernabeu fans were unable to see his best for Los Blancos.

Before leaving Premier League giants Chelsea, Eden Hazard was in his best form for the Blues in which the fans begged him to stay at Stamford Bridge.

But after winning the 2018/2019 Europa League title with Chelsea beating Arsenal, Eden Hazard confirmed his departure and joined Real Madrid.

Hazard's move to Real Madrid was celebrated by all fans of the club, but injuries disturbed the Belgian from giving his best to the club.

Despite that, Eden Hazard was still able to play 16 games for Real Madrid in all competitions throughout last season scoring only one goal.

This is not what Real Madrid fans expected from him considering how he used to score goals before he left Premier League side Chelsea.

The 29-year-old has now admitted that he was unable to perform well for Real Madrid in the 2019/20 La Liga term.

"We have won the title collectively this year, considering it has certainly been the worst season of my career individually," Hazard said in an interview with franceinfo.

In the 2019/20 season, Real Madrid lost only three games and finished the term as champions with 87 points which is five above second placed Barcelona.
