MADRID (Reuters) - Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said he will resist rushing Eden Hazard back from injury as he played down hopes of the Belgian making his long-awaited first start for the club when they host Levante in La Liga on Saturday.

Hazard, who joined Real from Chelsea for a reported 100 million euros in the close season, has missed the club’s opening three league games with a thigh injury.

Zidane’s side have struggled, with draws against Real Valladolid and Villarreal following on from their opening-day victory against Celta Vigo, leaving them fifth in the table with five points.With playmaker Isco out injured and forward Gareth Bale suspended, it had been hoped that Hazard would take the reins as the team’s talisman, however Zidane cautioned that Real's new number seven would need time."We all really want to see Hazard, but there’s a lot of pressure and expectation.

There was more mixed news on the injury front for Real as James Rodriguez returned to full training, but Luka Modric came back from international duty with an adductor issue.The Croat’s injury means Toni Kroos and Casemiro are the only fit central midfielders available to Zidane. “This is the squad we have and we can’t make any changes to that. Everyone will get their chance to bring their qualities to this side," he said.Stay tuned for a new offer coming to you soon.
