Vinicius Jr. insists that Eden Hazard has struck up a great relationship with Real Madrid’s Brazilian contingent.

Eden Hazard has struggled since his big-money move from Chelsea to Real Madrid. He has simply failed to hit the heights that were expected.

A player of his experience should have hit the ground running in many people’s eyes.

He returned from summer vacation over weight. Plus has been plagued by injury’s on and off so far this season.

However, as much as he has struggled to settle on the field, it appears he has settled well off it.

According to an interview with Esporte Interativo, Brazilian teenager Vinicius Jr says Hazard has struck a solid relationship with the club’s Brazilian players.

He said:

“Yes, he is close to the Brazilians, he likes how we play, he makes jokes like us, like Marcelo who is always joking.”

Vinicius only sees this bond getting stronger.

He added:

“He is close to us, but he doesn’t speak Spanish yet. But when he learns, our relationship will be even better.”

His latest social media post appears to show him channeling his inner Brazilian on the practice field as well as with his teammates.

All Zinedine Zidane needs now is for him to do it on the field of play.
