Roy Keane Completely Forgetting His Loyalty With Advice For Chelsea And Eden Hazard

Roy Keane Completely Forgetting His Loyalty With Advice For Chelsea And Eden Hazard
By Gary Reilly Updated

Hold on there a second Roy. We get that he has a job to do with ITV and we get that once that light goes on and things go live he has to glare at the presenter and say something menacing but let's just step back from things for a second.

Following Eden Hazard's comments this week that 'it would be hard to say no' to PSG, the Belgian attacker subsequently went out and turned in a performance of what could be described as 'abject shite' against the French champions.

Unfortunately, Keane wasn't on punditry duty that night but ITV made sure to set him up on Wednesday and sure enough, Keane went ahead and took the knife to the 25 year old who signed a new five and a half year, £200,000 a week, deal as recently as February 2015.

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.

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.

All well and good but let's just think about that for a second. We'll be having less of that kind of advice if you don't mind Roy. Ensuring that Eden Hazard continues to play like someone who really couldn't give a crap about his obligations could be crucial for Ireland's hopes of getting out of our group at Euro 2016.


Some may say we're being ludicrous and obviously you'd be right, but think about it. Roy Keane publicly shaming the likes of John Terry ensures that the Chelsea captain decides it time to act, he duly kicks Hazard up and down the training field, Hazard gets the message and turns around his form just in time for the summer.

Sure enough, he heads to the Euros in flying form, sticks a hat-trick past Ireland during the Group E clash and we can legitimately turn around and point to Roy Keane as the root cause of all our problems. Having said all that, facetiously of course, the Roy Keane punditry persona is still as entertaining as ever.
