Red Devils manager Roberto Martinez confirmed the news Monday, telling the Evening Standard, “Eden has suffered an injury before the match against Stoke, it does not look so serious.
“But he will not play against Greece. We are going to follow the injury,” the former Everton gaffer added ahead of the visit from the 2004 Euro champion.
“It is a big disappointment for Eden that he cannot lead the team. If you want to be a good team, you have to absorb everything,” Martinez added.
While neither the Premier League leader or Belgium provided a time frame for Hazard’s return, should he miss the visit from Palace on April 1, Antonio Conte will likely start a front-three of Willian, Diego Costa, and Pedro after employing the same attack against Stoke.
