Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane reveals that he does not want Eden Hazard to play for Belgium in their upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has claimed that it is for 'the good of everyone' that Eden Hazard does not play for Belgium in their Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Having suffered a thigh injury before the start of the season, Hazard will miss his third successive La Liga fixture this weekend.

However, while the summer arrival from Chelsea is nearing a recovery, Zidane has revealed that he does not want to see the playmaker feature against either San Marino or Scotland.

At a press conference, the Frenchman told reporters: "Legally he can travel with Belgium but at the moment he cannot play.

"He knows that, we do too and I hope he doesn't play, for the good of everyone, including Belgium."

Real will hope to have Hazard available when they host Levante on September 14.
