Real Madrid attacker Eden Hazard was handed a tailored fitness programme by coach Antonio Pintus during his summer break.
While Hazard leans on Lieven Maesschalck, Belgium's chief physio, it is Pintus who has final say on the attacker's exercises, says AS.
Pintus has delivered Maesschalck a programme for Hazard to work to during his time away from the club.
After two preseasons where Hazard has returned out of shape and overweight, Pintus has insisted upon a change of approach from the Real midfielder this summer.
Pintus has returned to Real Madrid under coach Carlo Ancelotti after leaving two seasons ago for Inter Milan.
