German legend Toni Kroos has said that he has no sympathy for Eden Hazard’s situation at Real Madrid.
Hazard’s stay at Madrid has been one filled with too many disappointments, as the 31-year-old winger has struggled with injuries and loss of form in his three years with Los Blancos.
The 32-year-old has only made 6 appearances for Real Madrid this season, with 3 of them in La Liga, as he has fallen down the pecking order at the Spanish champions.
Just last week, Hazard disclosed that he barely speaks to Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti.

The former Chelsea winger still has one more year left on his current contract with Los Blancos, but it’s understood Madrid are looking to offload the playmaker at the end of the season.
But Kroos says he has no sympathy for Hazard over his lack of playing time.
‘It’s a difficult situation for him. For a long time. But pity is out of place in football,’ Kroos told Eleven Sports, via Metro Sports.
‘I don’t believe Eden has a bad life. You can feel sorry for people who have it much worse than Eden.
