Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti has admitted he prefers to start other players in his squad ahead of Eden Hazard.
Hazard did not come off the bench last Sunday, as Madrid beat Barcelona 2-1 in the El Clasico.
The 30-year-old has started only four of the seven LaLiga matches in which he has featured this season and played in just one of their three Champions League matches.
Ancelotti told reporters on Tuesday: “He can play 4-3-3 on the left or 4-4-2 above or behind the striker. He is ready to play, but the problem is that there is a coach who prefers another player.
“He does not have a star status at Madrid because he has had many injuries and little by little he will have his best version.
“I am sure that this season we will see his best version and that he will play more than he is doing now.
“Hazard has it. Everything: quality, motivation. He has to endure, what happens is that sometimes the coach prefers other players“.
