“My first season at Madrid has been bad but not all of it,” Hazard told RTBF.
“It’s been a season of adaptation. I’ll be judged on the second one.”
Hazard is now focused on using the break enforced by the coronavirus pandemic to get himself fit.
“It’s up to me to be in good shape next year. The group is good; it’s been a great experience for me. I still have four years on my contract,” Hazard added.
“We’ll have another year in 2021, which is a shame, but my ankle will allow me to get back in shape.
