Marco Rose praises versatile Thorgan Hazard ahead of Gladbach clash

Marco Rose was full of praise for Belgian international Thorgan Hazard in the lead up to Saturday’s clash against Borussia Mönchengladbach.

This babbling water feeds the Lesse, which feeds the Meuse, which eventually flows into the North Sea.
