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.

‘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.’

Eden Hazard admits he can't wait to line-up alongside his little brother Thorgan for the first time ever when Chelsea kick-off the new season.

Older sibling Eden, 21, was joined at Stamford Bridge earlier this month by his 19-year-old younger brother, who joined the European champions just weeks after his high-profile 32million arrival from Lille.

Blues boss Roberto Di Matteo signed Thorgan for a considerable fraction of that fee from French second division outfit Lens but Eden believes he will prove to be real value for money for the west London side.

'Despite both of us having been at Tubize, we have never played in the same team,' Hazard told Chelsea's official club website.

'I hope I can play soon alongside my brother in the national team and also for Chelsea.'

Thorgan is looking to breakthrough to the senior Belgium side this year after impressing on the wings for the nation's Under 19s.

But Eden believes his brother is more adept in central midfield – rather than out wide where he expects to start the season for Chelsea.

'My brother is not the same as me because he is not someone who dribbles a lot,' Hazard added.

'He is more someone who has a passing game in midfield.

'He can play on the wings also but his best position is in central midfield, a number 10.'
