Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard recently tested positive for coronavirus, and will miss the upcoming international games with Belgium.

Hazard’s performance last season was marred by injuries and he didn’t play for his national team.

The Belgium international has now gone one year without playing for his country, and his brother, former Blue Thorgan Hazard, has admitted it has been such a long time, and Eden is quite unlucky.

“One year is indeed a long time,” Thorgan Hazard said of his older brother’s absence. “I hope this will be over soon. Both Belgium and Madrid miss Eden.

“He is one of the best players in the world and it is always better to have him in your squad. Madrid lost last weekend without him and the Red Devils were also defeated in England. We all need an Eden at 100 per cent.

“Nevertheless, he feels good. He is in good health and shows no symptoms [of COVID-19]. He is quarantined at home in Madrid and unfortunately he is not here.

“It was really a surprise for him, an unpleasant one. The injury was gone and then coronavirus was showing up. I really hope that next time there is not something again.

“He’s really unlucky. These are another two weeks gone. What can he do about it? Nothing.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
