Hazard: Eden is happy for me

VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach playmaker Thorgan Hazard says his brother Eden has praised him for his recent form in the Bundesliga and Champions League.

Thorgan claims his older brother is convinced that he can earn a place in the Belgium national squad if he continues if he can keep it up.

The 21-year-old has scored seven goals in his last eight games, including one in their 2-1 loss to Barcelona on Wednesday.

"He [Eden] is happy for me. He tells me I'm in hot form, but also that I have to keep going like that," he told France Football. "We hope we'll meet up with the national team so that we can play together.

"He doesn't give me any advice in particular. He has his own career to deal with. We're two different players at two different clubs. He doesn't bother me by saying, Do this, do that."

Chelsea have a £13m buy-back option for Hazard that will expire at the end of 2016.
