Real Madrid star vents his anger on Eden Hazard

La Liga By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 15/09/2019

Real Madrid star Thiabuat Courtois was not impressed with Eden Hazard display against Levante during their La Liga clash on Saturday.

Hazard made his debut for Real Madrid but failed to convert a score chance when he was set with an opportunity to add to Real Madrid tally when he came in as a substitute later on for Casemiro.

Courtois made his opinion known after the game that he was frustrated with Hazard failure to keep possession as Los Blancos held on to survive a scare from the visitors.

The game ended 3-2 in favour of Real Madrid, Los Blancos almost threw away their 3-0 lead after Levante scored two goals to close the margin.

Courtois told Movistar: "He almost scored a goal with what he did (in attack). He has a lot of pace with the ball, it's what he does.

"But I got a little p****d off with him because he lost the ball twice."

Karim Benzema's brace and Casemiro's strike was almost rendered in vain as Levante mounted a late charge.

Zinedine Zidane had watched his side draw their last two games and Courtois was keen to point out that only his efforts prevented that becoming three in a row.

He added: "We were thinking of a clean sheet at half-time. Sometimes we have to continue in the same way, but we didn't do that after the break.

"It became 3-1 and then 3-2 and we knew we couldn't drop points again. In the end, I was able to make the stop to save us.

"If we kept going like in the first half, with all due respect, we would have won 5-0 or 6-0.

"We played our best 45 minutes of the year, but this is football. Levante changed their system and we lacked precision with our passing."
