Keane: Hazard is a spoilt brat

Cape Town - Roy Keane has not held back on his view of Chelsea forward Eden Hazard, claiming he'd 'kick him up and down the training pitch' if he was his team-mate.

The Belgian admitted this week that it would be hard to reject a potential transfer to Ligue 1 Champions Paris Saint-Germain in order to 'win the Champions league'.

According to Keane, the timing of his comments before Chelsea faced PSG in the Champions league last-16 was unbelievably disrespectful and that he's paid to perform not to sulk and make comments about his future.

"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 during the ITV's Champions League highlights show.

"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."
