Chelsea’s Thorgan Hazard scored for Gladbach in friendly v Stoke [video]
- July 21, 2014
Thorgan Hazard has spent the last two seasons in Belgium, performing well for Zulte Waregem.
For the 2014/2015 season, Chelsea have sent Eden’s younger brother to Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga to see if he can deal with a more physical league.
And, Thorgan Hazard got his Gladbach career off to a flyer with a goal in the friendly draw with Stoke on Sunday.
The 21-year-old picked up a poor pass from Charlie Adam and rifled a shot past Thomas Sorensen into the far corner.
Cue Chelsea fans getting excited about a Chelsea player scoring against Stoke, albeit during a pre-season friendly.
Nevertheless, a good season from Hazard at Monchengladbach and we could well see him playing alongside Eden in the first team at Chelsea in 2015/2016.
