Hazard request to have jersey 10 at Real Madrid hits a snag

15 Jun 2019, 01:30

Real Madrid new signing Eden Hazard has revealed that his attempt to get the number 10 jersey at the club has hit a snag.

Ballon d'Or winner Modric is the owner of that jersey and Hazard revealed he had used the Croatian's international team-mate Mateo Kovacic, who was on loan at Chelsea last season from Madrid, in a bid to obtain the shirt.

Hazard said during his unveiling on Thursday: "I've been in contact with Modric via Kovacic and I asked him if I could have the number 10 and he said no," Hazard added.

Joke

"[It was] a bit of a joke we had. I'll have to find a number but I don't think the number is the most important thing.

"I think the most important thing is to wear the Real Madrid shirt and defend this club."

However, at his presentation, Hazard only had his name on the back of a numberless shirt and he conceded his efforts to sway Modric had been futile.

Belgium international Hazard completed his move to Los Blancos last week after seven years at Chelsea, where he earned a reputation as one of the most reliable penalty-takers around but he was going to leave the role to captain Sergio Ramos.
