Thorgan Hazard: “Eden is one of the best in the world”

Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Thorgan Hazard has heaped praise on his older brother Eden, claiming him to be one of the best players in the world. Hazard has struggled for form this season but he seemingly never fails to impress his brother.

Thorgan told Marca that he would like the opportunity to play in the same team as his two brothers.

“I hope one day we can all play in the same team, Eden, [Ujpest midfielder] Kylian and I, that would be great. I don’t know if it will be possible at a big club, but maybe at some point in the future.

“Could I play in the same team as Eden again? I do not know which team I could play for, so at the moment it is difficult.  I am not at the same level as Eden, he is one of the best players in the world. 

“I have to improve and work hard to play with him but one day I’d love to.

Thorgan looks up to his more established brother Eden and sees him as a role model.

“My idols used to be [Zinedine] Zidane, Thierry Henry and Ronaldinho but now I have more of a role model in my brother Eden. I don’t have idols anymore.”
