Thorgan Hazard was perhaps the standout player for Anderlecht against Cercle Brugge on Sunday. Afterwards he spoke about his brother Eden and the Red Devils, among other things.
Thorgan Hazard, the Golden Boot of 2013, has been coming through more and more at Anderlecht in recent weeks. Hazard was responsible for the first two goals against Cercle Brugge. Only his first goal is still missing.
Hazard did provide an assist against KV Mechelen and Standard, but his shot hit the post against Cercle. “It’s a shame I didn’t score my first goal, because that would have been good for confidence. Not that it was really necessary. If I don’t score but we win 0-3, that’s fine with me.”
Eden Hazard & Red Devils
It was also about brother Eden Hazard, who suddenly appeared at the Ballon d’Or with his sons. He has not yet come to watch his brother’s match in Belgium, but he does not seem to be in a hurry either.
“Eden comes when he has time, when his sons are free, as Eden always is these days. His sons support his uncle at home, but we will see if we support them when we play against RWDM and Kylian,” laughed Thorgan yet.
On Friday, Domenico Tedesco will announce his selection for the international matches against Serbia and Azerbaijan. Hazard’s last international match dates from December 1, 2022 at the World Cup in Qatar against Croatia. “But I’m not thinking about that at the moment,” Hazard replied.
