Another Hazard for defences as Eden's nurturer says 16-year-old Kylian can be a world-beater

Eden Hazard has a brother who is even more talented — and it is not 19-year-old Thorgan, who has joined him at Chelsea.
It is 16-year-old Kylian who could yet turn out to be the star turn among the Hazard boys.

Fathi Ennabli, youth co-ordinator at Tubize, insists Kylian could scale greater heights, with just one reservation.
‘Kylian has the same natural attributes as Eden and is every bit as good, if not better,’ he said.

Oh brother: Thorgan has joined Essevee on loan from Chelsea
‘He has the same explosive pace that
takes him past players, and he can turn a game with something no-one
else could do. But there was always a problem with his attitude. He had
no concept of discipline or applying himself.
‘There was one youth game here where, midway through the second half, the coach realised he was a player short.
‘It was Kylian, and he had just wandered off. We found him sitting in a tree, and when we asked why, he just shrugged his shoulders and said he was fed up of playing.
‘He is at Lille’s academy at the moment and I hear there are signs of improvement. But he’s not there yet. If he doesn’t mend his ways it’s going to be a huge waste.’
