Eden Hazard has insisted he is happy at Real Madrid, rubbishing claims he is not.

Hazard, who joined Real Madrid in 2019, has not quite lived up to the expectations at the Spanish side, and the Belgian has often come under intense criticism as a result.

Injuries have also been an issue for Hazard at Real Madrid, and the frequent spells on the sidelines have not helped the 30-year-old's case either.

Speculations have had it that Real Madrid could part ways with Hazard, but the former Chelsea star insists he is happy at the La Liga side. "It's not true that I'm unhappy at Real Madrid, I feel very happy and you know that a player is always happy when they're playing," Hazard told reporters [via Marca] after Belgium's 5-2 win over Estonia.

"I haven't played much, nor have I scored, but that doesn't influence the love I have for the club. I'm very happy in the city of Madrid.

"The situation has been made complicated by COVID and injuries, but I'm happy."

Hazard added: "People can think what they want, but I'm happy in Madrid.

"I know I can do good things there and that's it.

"When I score goals, when I smile again, everyone will say that I'm happy again, but I'm already happy. I'm missing playing."
