FM 2011 Player Profile – Thorgan Hazard
written by Darren Smith
Name: Thorgan Hazard
Club: RC Lens
Price tag: £2.8m (patch 11.3)
Hazard at the start in 201o
I did Eden Hazard, so I had to do his brother too. Not as great as his brother, but Thorgan has great potential and is definitely worth signing if you have a spare £2.8m. He can develop into a similar player to his older brother, but most likely not as good. Here is what Cagigao makes of him:
A great report, the potential is there, he just needs the right nurturing to become a world class player, which I don’t think anybody has seen in their games. Like his brother, he is vulnerable in the air but that’s his only weakness, maybe strength too but who needs strength if you can dribble past everybody?
Hazard in 2019, aged 26
He develops really well and is a regular for Udinese, playing against his brother now after an £11m move in 2015 after developing at Man Utd and having a 1 season spell at Feyenoord.
My Best Buy Rating: 8.5/10
It’s evident that he can develop into a good player and can be sold for a lot more than the £2.8m you can buy him for at the start, but he doesn’t turn into a world-beating player and cannot compete with his brother in terms of quality, so it only makes sense that he is rated less than his brother. I’ve never personally gone for him, I never start with a team that is able to sign him in the first season unless I use a huge chunk of my budget, and that chunk can be put to better use to strengthen the first team.
