Eden Hazard: I'm not worried about shirt number

    Following his move to Real Madrid, there are speculation that new Real Madrid recruit Eden Hazard will face an uphill battle to unseat Luka Modric as the no. 10. However he has revealed that he is not worried about shirt number or penalty kick responsibilities at Real Madrid, but rather fitting in with his new team-mates now that he's finally with the club.

    The Belgian completed a move from Chelsea last week, putting an end to months of speculation leading him to the club with an initial fee of £88.5m (€100m/$112m) to become the most expensive transfer ever conducted by the club, exceeding that of Gareth Bale.

    The Belgium international, who was officially unveiled as the latest arrival at Santiago Bernabeu today is the face of that movement and, while he will likely go down as this summer's marquee signing, he insists that he isn't coming to Madrid to ruffle feathers.

    Case in point is the discussion of what shirt number he will choose, with Luka Modric currently holding onto the No. 10, a number Hazard says he will willingly give up.

    "I've talked to Modric through Kovacic. I jokingly asked him if he could leave me No.10, he said no, I have to find another number," Hazard said on Thursday.

    "For me the number is not important, but to play with this shirt, with this badge."

    Hazard also says he will not push on to take penalties for Real Madrid, with several other penalty-takers already in-house.

    Hazard will not find it easy with Maldrid team, playing with All stars demands a lot of pressure,.

    I think it's way too early to say that. It depends on what the team wants, the coach, the coach style of play and the player himself. If he puts in effort and help the team, why will there be a problem?
