Eden Hazard reacts to Ancelotti's appointment as Real Madrid coach

Eden Hazard believes new coach Carlo Ancelotti, who will replace Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid next season would be good for him. 

Ancelotti was appointed Madrid manager at the start of the current month, replacing Zidane who had parted ways with the Los Blancos. Speaking to Belgian TV station RTBF about the upcoming UEFA Euro, the former Chelsea man also talked about the arrival of Ancelotti. 

"Everyone in Madrid knows what Ancelotti gave the club in the past. He won the Champions League with this group and knows many players. We know he is a very experienced coach and he knows the city and the fanbase. I think we can achieve great things together," said Hazard.

Ancelotti and Hazard have not worked together but the attacker said that he’s heard the Italian coach is 'a very friendly person who just wants to win.'

"That’s what we all want, we will have the chance to work together, it’s good for me," he added.

"We all know that my first years there were bad. Now I have to think about the Euro and then be in perfect condition for next year," said Hazard.

"Being close to him every day as coach of Real Madrid was the best. There’s nothing better than being coached by your idol," concluded Hazard.
