Eden Hazard is looking ‘like an airplane’ according to Real Madrid coach Alvaro Arbeloa, after the Belgian international returned to training in fantastic shape.

The superstar has been criticised since his move from Chelsea last summer after he appeared to pile on the pounds when he joined the Galacticos.

But after three months out with the coronavirus lockdown, Hazard has put in the work and emerged this week looking in prime condition as he aims to fire Los Blancos to the LaLiga title.

And former Madrid and Liverpool defender Arbeloa who is now a coach for the club’s academy, has told Real Madrid TV how impressed he is with Hazard’s return to fitness.

He said: ‘I imagine that, with Marco (Asensio), there will have to be more care, giving him minutes little by little.

‘You have to be more careful with him than with Eden [Hazard], who has returned like an airplane. He is going to win us many games.’

It was previously reported that Madrid bosses were unhappy with Hazard when he arrived at the club ‘overweight’ after he first signed.

Hazard has found it tough since his £135m move to the Santiago Bernabeu last summer scoring just one goal in 15 appearances across all competitions.

The Belgian star has endured a torrid campaign, as recurring fitness issues have forced the big-money signing to be out of action for several months.

Hazard last took to the field for Los Merengues at the end of February, and he was expected to miss the remainder of the season after limping off in their shock 1-0 defeat to Levante.

But with LaLiga set to restart Madrid hope Hazard can find form at the right time and help them grapple back the championship from the clutches of Barcelona, who have won the last two league titles.
