Scores on & off the pitch: Chelsea’s Thorgan Hazard has a dream 2013-14 start with Zulte Waregem
- July 28, 2013
Eden’s younger brother, 20-year-old Thorgan Hazard, had a dream start to the 2013-14 season in Belgium with current employers Zulte Waregem.
Thorgan, who joined Chelsea back in 2012, only to be immediately farmed out to Zulte Waregem, had a wonderful year last season as he helped the side mount a surprise challenge for the Belgian title last season, narrowly losing out to Anderlecht on the final day.
The opening day of the 2013-14 season on Saturday saw the Chelsea loanee shine once again for Zulte Waregem in an away game at Lierse.
Thorgan grabbed an assist in the 33rd minute to break the deadlock, as the midfielder threaded a fine left-footed pass to forward Mouhamadou Habibou, who scored from point-blank range.
Lierse equalised ten minutes later, but the final moments of the first half saw Thorgan grab the spotlight as he curled a stunning free-kick into the top corner.
After the match Thorgan Hazard pulled another stunner as he kissed blonde girlfriend in a romantic moment (see above).
Thorgan Hazard dedicated his goal to his grandfather who passed away earlier on Saturday.
