Toni Kroos and Eden Hazard return to training

Toni Kroos and Eden Hazard have returned to training ahead of schedule and the duo were pictured training with the first-team this morning.

Kroos and Hazard were expected to be out for much longer spells. Their return from injury will be a huge boost to Zinedine Zidane, considering Real Madrid's schedule between now and the end of the season. Real Madrid, however, will still be without club captain Sergio Ramos for a month after the Spaniard picked up an injury on international duty.

Manager Zinedine Zidane will take a cautious approach to Eden Hazard returning to the Real Madrid first-team. The Belgian has struggled with injuries since joining Madrid and Zidane does not want to take any more chances with his fitness.

Ahead of Real Madrid's clash against Eibar on Saturday, Zidane was asked about when he expects Hazard to return to the pitch.

"We don't have a plan with Hazard. We are not going to force anything. We will take it step by step. I can't tell you exactly when I see him playing. If it's in three days, all the better. If it's in 10 days, fine. We are happy because he is better," responded Zidane.

The Belgian has already missed a good chunk of the season due to injury and has struggled to find form due to his lack of regular playing time.
