The Red Devils will play their last home game in the run-up to the World Cup against Wales on Thursday evening. And so it is looking forward to which eleven names national coach Roberto Martinez will kick off. Captain Eden Hazard is already expected in the basic team.
However, it has not been an easy season for the 31-year-old attacker so far. However, the omens last summer were promising. In contrast to previous years, the attacker returned quite fit from his leave period, this time there was no question of being overweight. In addition, a few months earlier he had had a metal plate removed from his ankle, so that the Red Devil could in principle be able to play football pain-free again.
But despite this, the season started quite disappointing and he hardly got any playing opportunity. After a good comeback against Celtic Glasgow, he was unable to confirm his first starting spot in months. And in the last two games of the Spanish champion, he didn’t even get off the bench.
Nevertheless, Martinez showed great praise for the attacker on Wednesday. “Obviously he doesn’t make enough game minutes and isn’t top fit, but his mindset is great. He’s excited to be here and wants to play. I haven’t seen that kind of energy with him in a while,” the national coach was quoted as saying Bee sporza.
