The switch came after the Belgium international gave the ball away on multiple occassions during their Champions League visit to Shakhtar Donetsk..
Carlo Ancelotti turned to his assistant coach – his son, Davide – and demanded that Vinicius Jr warm up to replace Hazard.
The ex-Prem playmaker has suffered a host of injury issues since joining Madrid from the Blues for £88.5million back in 2019.
This was supposed to finally be a positive season for the attacker after he impressed Real bosses by turning up to pre-season in peak condition.
But he has appeared in just three of Madrid’s eight LaLiga matches so far this season, starting in only one.
The diminutive maestro started his country’s Nations League clash with Wales last month as they edged to a 2-1 victory.
And his status as a benchwarmer for Ancelotti’s side is something which has him worried less than two months out from the World Cup in Qatar.
Speaking to Spanish media, he said: “There have been difficult times because I want to play and I don’t play.
“I feel good at Real Madrid, I just play less. And when I play, I play well. It’s a delicate situation because I want to play more.
“I know what I can do when I play.
“I want to play the maximum number of minutes and get to the World Cup in shape.”
Although boss Ancelotti doesn’t agree with Hazard on the standard of his performances.
He said: “Eden hasn’t had to speak to me because he knows the situation, that there’s a lot of competition. I think his situation is quite clear.”
