Thorgan Hazard named Zulte Waregem captain

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

I've never heard of an on-loan player captaining a side before, so this is kind of weird, but Thorgan Hazard is apparently taking the armband off Davy De Fauw at Zulte Waregem to become the club's new captain:

This is supposed to help his development by giving Thorgan greater responsibility, but I'm still not sure what the purpose of the move is from Waregem's perspective -- I simply don't see how it helps the club to have a loanee leading the team. It sounds like de Fauw will still be doing most of the captainy things at the club, which makes this even more curious. We'll have to see how it works out, but what is obvious is that Thorgan Hazard has the ability and demeanor to be a leader at a club, which is impressive for one so young.
