Toni Kroos, Real Madrid’s Spanish soccer player, does not feel pity for his Belgian teammate Eden Hazard, saying: I do not feel sorry for anyone in football.
Hazard’s career with Real Madrid has been damaged by injuries, and the former Chelsea player has only started one league match this season.
Hazard, 32, who has played just 98 minutes in La Liga this season, revealed earlier this week that he and coach Carlo Ancelotti “don’t talk to each other”.
And while Hazard is waiting to see what happens during the remainder of his contract, which he signed in 2019 for a period of five years, his chances of making his way to play with the team in the coming period seem remote. But Kroos has little sympathy for the player.
Kroos told the Belgian Eleven Sport radio: Empathy does not belong in football. I don’t think Eden’s life is bad.
“You can sympathize with people who are clearly going through a bad time,” he added. It’s not about the money, I just don’t feel sorry for anyone in football.
He continued: Of course, the situation was difficult for a long time, but in the end, everyone is responsible for their situation to some extent.
He emphasized: This is why I think pity is misplaced. I know Eden very well, we talk a lot, but I sympathize with people who are in very bad situations and Eden is not one of them.
