He and his staff took in Zulte Waregem's game against Anderlecht

The Daily Mail has some photographic evidence of Jose Mourinho and members of his staff taking in a Zulte Waregem game. For those of you who didn't already know, Chelsea happen to have a young player on loan at the Belgian club, Thorgan Hazard, brother of Eden.

The Mail goes on to claim that Hazard will be traveling with the club during their preseason, and given that many senior players tend to get started late during World Cup years, that's not all that hard to believe. Hazard was great this season in Belgium, but the leap from that level to Chelsea is just so massive that I'd be shocked to see Thorgan playing here next year, especially once you take into consideration the other availavble talent in that position.

Regardless, it's nice to see that Mourinho isn't taking any time off now that the season is over, but rather touching base with some of the youngsters who might have a Chelsea future instead. The future is looking very, very blue.
