After his first group training session since February, the 29-year-old Belgian star spoke to the club's official media channels to discuss his return. "Now we have to wait until the games arrive, but I am very happy. Now what we want is to be all together and try to work as a group".
"I like to be back training, but it's better to be playing", Zidane said. There are 11 matches left and we are going to be well prepared to finish strong. It will be important to give all we've got to be able to win something. The return match in England hasn't been scheduled.
Hazard was talking after Real's initial training session back in tiny teams, having actually accomplished private sessions recently.

In a video on Real Madrid's Twitter account, Hazard claimed: "Very excellent to be back on the pitch to deal with the kids".
"Now [the training sessions] are better. So, I just want to be ready for the next game".
The goalkeepers - Thibaut Courtois, Alphonse Areola, and Diego Altube Suarez - have also been grinding, working on their reflexes and agility as they prepare for competitive action to restart.
Although the players returned to work in good physical condition, Zidane is leaving nothing to chance and, alongside fitness coach Gregory Dupont, is raising the bar ahead of LaLiga Santander's resumption in June. "Everyone is doing very well".
