Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane launched a scathing attack on Eden Hazard for his attitude following Chelsea's defeat to Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night.
Talking on the Champions League highlights show, Keane questioned the Belgian's commitment to the Blues after he admitted it would be hard to turn down an offer from the Ligue 1 giants.
In an interview with French newspaper Le Parisien days before the European Clash at the Parc des Princes, Hazard disclosed that he wants to win the Champions League and moving to PSG could be a viable option in the future.

The statement didn’t go down well with Keane, who was highly critical of the Belgium talisman.
According to the Daily Mail, the 44-year-old 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."
Asked how he would have tackled the issue, he added: "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."
Hazard has been largely uninspiring for Chelsea this season and a shadow of the player who dominated the Premier League last campaign, and despite being highly rated across Europe, experts remain sceptical whether anyone would meet his market value.
The 25-year-old has scored just once and made five assists all season, his single strike coming against MK Dons in the FA Cup.
Glenn Hoddle, who was also present on the show, concurred with Keane and claimed a lack of autoritative figures at Chelsea is also to blame for Hazard's actions.
He said: "Before, they had a [Didier] Drogba, they had John Terry, a Frank Lampard and Petr Cech - experienced players who would’ve stopped that at source."
