Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane was dealt a blow on Thursday with the news that Sergio Ramos has picked up a calf injury, yet he has received good news on Friday, as Toni Kroos and Eden Hazard have been able to train with the group.
Kroos has been working like clockwork in order to put his muscular issue behind him, which caused him to miss Germany’s three World Cup qualifiers during this international break.
He has recovered quicker than expected and, as such, he could be included in the squad to face Eibar on Saturday. Zidane could opt to rest him in order to keep him fresh for the Liverpool game on Wednesday, though.
Hazard, meanwhile, seems to be fully recovered from his psoas injury and he could make his return to the squad against Liverpool. He could end up being a luxury reinforcement ahead of this final stretch of the season.
The Belgian forward was diagnosed with a psoas injury on March 15, at which point he seriously considered undergoing surgery to remove the ankle plate and put an end to all his physical problems.
Hazard was convinced that it is the ankle that causing all his muscular injuries, but after consulting with several specialists, it was decided that he would not be operated on for a third time.
With no timeline for his return, Hazard started training again and was in the hands of the Belgian national team physios during the international break.
