Eden Hazard branded 'a kid' by angry Chelsea boss

Eden Hazard was last night branded a 'kid' by manager Jose Mourinho, after being dropped from Chelsea's squad to face Schalke in the Champions League, according to the Express.

The Belgian was left out of Mourinho's squad for the all-important fixture after reportedly going AWOL at the weekend following the Blues' 2-0 defeat at the hands of Newcastle.

Rumour has it that Hazard travelled to France following the disappointing result and met up with his former Lille team-mates to celebrate their victory over Monaco.

Mourinho was left fuming with his star's actions and subsequently made him one of five regulars to miss out last night. 

And the Special One was not in a mood to beat around the bush concerning the decision to axe Hazard, stating that he still needs to time to fully grow up.

"I don’t want to lie, he is not injured. He is a kid. Kids make mistakes and fathers have to be clever in the way they educate their sons," Mourinho said.

“He didn’t play. He wanted to play. He was sad because he didn’t play. We won without him. On Saturday, he is back. So end of story.”

If Chelsea was suffering without their talented Belgian they didn't show it one bit. The Blues romped to a 3-0 victory over fellow qualification hopefuls Schalke at Stamford Bridge, courtesy of a brace from Samuel Eto'o and a late effort from Demba Ba.
