Roy Keane has launched an astonishing attack on Eden Hazard following the Chelsea playmaker’s subdued performance during Tuesday’s 2-1 loss to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Belgian playmaker failed to make an impact on the game and was substituted after 71 minutes at Parc des Princes.

If I was a team-mate of his I would kick him up and down the training pitch

Hazard came in for criticism after he was quoted as saying that he would find it difficult to turn down a potential transfer to Paris Saint-Germain in the build-up to Tuesday’s Champions League game.

The 25-year-old, who was the PFA player of the year last season, has struggled to find consistent form for the Blues this season and has only scored one goal so far this term.

And former Manchester United captain Keane has been less than impressed by what he has seen from Hazard in recent months.

Speaking on ITV on Wednesday night, Keane said: “I can’t understand these players, he signed an extension of five years only last year, when we saw how brilliant he was… and then he’s coming out with all that nonsense on the eve of a big game.

“If I was a team-mate of his, I would kick him up and down the training pitch. Some of the senior players have got to get hold of him. He’s a talented boy, but his attitude is like a spoilt child. It was absolutely ridiculous.

“You don’t mind some players sometimes being moody, or having their head turned if they think they might be moving, but once you go on that pitch you’ve still got your pride.

“You’re playing for your team-mates, for your club, for your supporters, for your family. You’ve got to go out and perform, and be moody after the game if need be.”
