Roy Keane has blasted Eden Hazard after the Chelsea midfielder swapped shirts at half-time of their clash against Paris Saint-Germain.

Chelsea lost 2-1 to PSG on the night and 4-2 on aggregate, with the French side advancing to the Champions League quarter-finals thanks to goals from Adrien Rabiot and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Angel Di Maria was rather good, too.

Hazard was pictured swapping shirts with the Argentinean winger at half-time of the game, with the scores level at 1-1 and the tie finely balanced.

The Belgian was then booed off by some in attendance at Stamford Bridge when he was substituted in the second half.

Interim manager Guus Hiddink discussed Hazard after the game. Speaking to ITV, Keane condemned the scenes.

“I’m afraid to comment on this,” said the angry man. “It’s bad enough at the end of the game, but half-time in a big game, the two guys swapping shirts? It’s shocking.

“What is going through a player’s mindset? In such a big game, they are thinking about swapping jerseys at half-time? I wouldn’t even bother at the end of the game. Shocking.”
