After already making blatant kissy faces in the direction of the French champions prior to the sides 1st leg tie a fortnight ago, it seems that Eden Hazard hasn’t learnt in lesson in the art of keeping fans onside.
With Chelsea’s frantic Champions League 2nd leg bout with PSG in the balance at 1-1 at the first half end last night, Hazard chose this as the perfect moment to give himself a little keep sake. Yes, the Belgian opted to swap shirts with a fellow attacking midfield wizard right in the heat of battle – a relatively recent footballing phenomenon that seems to cause aneurysms in the everyday football fan.

And it’s not as if his latest keepsake reinvigorated the out of form midfielder in the second half.
Hazard put in yet another moribund display as Paris Saint-Germain continued to claim a 2-1 victory (eventually winning the tie 4-2 on aggregate) only after the Belgian limped off 77 minutes off with an injury. Naturally a number of the home fans let the Belgian know what they thought of him on his exit.
