Roy Keane has accused Chelsea star Eden Hazard of behaving like a "spoilt child". The former Manchester United captain has hit out at the Blues midfielder over his recent flirtation with Paris Saint-Germain, suggesting he is letting his current teammates down.
Hazard, 25, admitted it would be hard to reject an offer from the reigning French champions. But Keane thinks he should instead focus his attention on Chelsea's season.
"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," Keane said of the Chelsea star.
"If I was a teammate 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."
Keane believes Hazard has allowed rumours of a potential move to distract him from giving his best to the Chelsea cause.
"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," he said. "You're playing for your teammates, 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."
Hazard has endured a difficult season at Stamford Bridge, which has seen him struggle with form and fitness. The Chelsea attacker has however continued to be linked with big-money moves to Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.
