The former Manchester United legend spoke to ITV after Chelsea’s 2-1 loss away at the Parc de Princes in which Hazard put in a sub-standard performance.

He 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.”

Many Chelsea fans will agree with Keane after Hazard’s comments about a possible move to the French Champions the day before their biggest game of the season. The Blues take on Manchester City in the FA Cup on Sunday.
