Toni Kroos says Eden Hazard ‘let his career die’ at Real Madrid

Toni Kroos did not hold back when talking about Real Madrid’s big-money signing Eden Hazard.

After impressing in the Premier League with Chelsea, Hazard completed a huge move to Madrid back in 2019 in a deal worth a reported €100 million.

However, the Belgian failed to live up to the hype as his time as a Madrid player was badly hampered by a series of injury problems.

Earlier in the month, it was announced that Hazard is to leave Madrid at the end of the 22/23 season.

Speaking on his podcast Einfach mal Luppen, Kroos appeared to take a swipe at Hazard when talking about Madrid’s big-money signings.

He said: “We had another player who came for a lot of money and basically let his career die.

“It was a lot of money, I think everyone would say that wasn't a good transfer. But let's be positive.”

Previously, Kroos said that he does not feel sorry for Hazard despite his difficult spell.

The German said to Eleven Sports: “Of course it's a difficult situation, but pity is out of place in football.

“I don't think Eden has a bad life. You can feel sorry for people who have a much worse life than him. It's not about money, I don't feel sorry for anyone in football.”

During his time with Los Blancos, Hazard made a total of 76 appearances and only managed to score seven goals.

However, despite his lack of goal involvement, he got his hands on two La Liga titles, one Copa del Rey, one Supercopa de Espana, one Champions League and one UEFA Super Cup.

Last year, Hazard apologised to fans for his form in a Madrid shirt.

He said to Marca: “I'm sorry. I'm trying, but ... I'm sorry.

“I have one more year and I have to show [what I can do] but it isn't easy. I'm not playing, I want to play more. I'm really sorry about what has happened.”
