'Ankle injury is a thing of the past' - Hazard in high spirits after returning to action with Madrid


The Belgium forward has featured only intermittently for his club since moving from Chelsea due to a succession of physical problems

Real Madrid star Eden Hazard vowed his ankle troubles were now behind him after the Blancos kicked off Carlo Ancelotti's second spell as coach in style.

The Belgian played just over an hour of Saturday's 4-1 thrashing of Alaves and provided a fine assist before being replaced by Vinicius Junior, with Madrid already cruising at that stage thanks to Karim Benzema's double and a strike from Nacho.

And having seen his time at the Santiago Bernabeu severely affected by injury, Hazard believes he has now turned a corner.
