The younger brother of the Chelsea star is hoping Gladbach get a chance to face the Premier League winners in next season’s Champions League
Eden Hazard’s younger brother Thorgan is hoping for a Champions League showdown between Chelsea and Borussia Monchengladbach so he can prove he is the better footballer.
Eden, 24, was crowned the PFA Player of the Year after winning the Premier League and League Cup in 2014-15.
Thorgan, meanwhile, secured an €8 million move away from Chelsea to Gladbach this summer after an impressive loan spell at the club last season.
A third place finish in the Bundesliga means the club will play in the Champions League next term and Thorgan is hoping for a meeting with his older brother in Europe.
“My desire is for Chelsea to be among Gladbach’s Champions League opponents this campaign,” the 22-year-old told Bild. “I’ve never played against my brother Eden competitively, that would be a great thing for our whole family.
He added, chuckling: “Then we can see who the better Hazard is!”
Thorgan also insisted he would be endeavouring to demonstrate why he deserves the No.10 jersey in his second campaign in German football.
“The No.10 position is my best position, but I do not know how the coach plans to play me,” Hazard added. “I have shown that I can also play on the wing.
“I learned a lot last season, I think I became a better player. I was able to play in one of the strongest leagues in the world.
“Of course, I hope that next season I will play a bit more, but I know that the competition for places is huge. This is normal at a big club. I will work hard and have to play well to assert myself.”
