Thorgan Hazard to be given chance to impress Jose Mourinho

Published Add your comment

Jose Mourinho is set to give Thorgan Hazard a chance to impress by taking him on pre-season tour with Chelsea, reports Voetbal International.

The 20-year-old has had a productive season on loan with Zulte Waregem where his performances have earned him a nomination for the Belgium Pro player of the season.

His brother, Eden, has too shone in the Premier League with the Blues, winning PFA Young Player of the Season and Chelsea's in-house player of the season award.

Now the younger of the two could return to Stamford Bridge after spending two seasons out on loan with Mourinho set to give him a chance to impress in pre-season.

Although there is a chance Thorgan won't be reunited with his brother when he returns to Chelsea in July. Eden has been consistently linked with a move away from west London following a spat with Mourinho.

Mourinho has criticised Hazard, questioning his work rate, while Hazard has criticised the style of Chelsea's play.

"Eden is the kind of player that is not so mentally ready to look back to his left-back and to leave his life for him," Mourinho told reporters recently.

If Mourinho doesn't think Thorgan is ready for the tribulations of the Premier League there will be plenty of clubs willing to take him on loan.

PSV are the latest club to be credited with an interest while Borussia Dortmund have been linked in the past.

Thorgan joined Chelsea several months after Eden in the summer of 2012. However, while the older of the two has grown to become one of the Premier League's best players, Thorgan is yet to make his Chelsea debut.
