Real Madrid star Eden Hazard has admitted he's not finding easy maintaining his diet plan while in quarantine.
Much like a number of footballers around the world, the Belgian is training solo while in self-isolation but the diet side of things is where he's having some difficulty.
"It's complicated for me," Hazard told RTBF, via Marca.
"I'm trying not to eat a lot. I'm trying not to go into the pantry to eat a lot of buns, but it's not easy.
"I'm working with the physic online. He can't come here anymore because he fell ill and has to stay at home.
"We started 10 days ago, but he sends me videos from home. I'm working to strengthen my ankle and I'm doing what I can from home."

Hazard sounds like all of us in these tough times but it is worth remembering he arrived overweight at Real Madrid when he joined up with his new teammates for pre-season.
The same happened with Hazard during his time at Chelsea and the man himself confirmed that he didn't keep up with his fitness regime while on holiday ahead of his £130 million to Los Blancos.
"It's true, I can't lie," Hazard told Sport and Foot Magazine, as per MARCA, when asked if reports about him being overweight were true.
"But if I'm on vacation, I'm on vacation. I gained five kilos in the summer. I'm someone who puts on weight very quickly but I can lose it fast as well.
"When I was 18 at Lille I weighed 72 or 73 kilos, then 75 when I added some muscle and on a bad day it was 77.
"In the summer I was 80 kilos but I lost it again in 10 days."
Hazard's dream move to Real hasn't exactly gone to plan so far, having scored just one goal in his new colours in 15 appearances.
