Belgium relocate fitness staff to London for Premier League stars

Belgium have moved their top fitness staff to London to treat their Premier League based stars ahead of the World Cup.

Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard , Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen, and Tottenham trio Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele and Nacer Chadli are all based in the capital.

Six more Red Devils stars, including Manchester City and Belgium skipper Vincent Kompany, play in the Premier League.

And physio Lieven Maesschalck told the Sunday People: "It's a logical choice to open a practice in London.

"I've got plenty of British patients as well.

"I'll spend the first few months building it up, then we'll see how it goes.

"I've had the idea for some time.

"I just wanted to wait until Belgium had made sure of reaching the World Cup finals."
