Toni Kroos insists he does not feel sorry for Eden Hazard’s situation at Real Madrid.
The former Chelsea winger has failed to make an impact following his £130 million move to Madrid in 2019.
Hazard, who retired from Belgium’s national team after their woeful World Cup campaign in Qatar, has barely featured for Madrid this season, starting just three games in all competitions so far.
The 32-year-old admitted last week that he barely speaks to Carlo Ancelotti and it’s understood at Madrid are looking to offload the Belgian 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.
‘I don’t believe Eden has a bad life. You can feel sorry for people who have it much worse than Eden.
‘It’s not just about money. I don’t feel sorry for anyone in football. In the end, everyone is partly responsible for their own situation.
‘I know Eden very well. We are often together. But I feel sorry for people who are very, very bad, and Eden is not one of them.’
