Southampton boss Puel: I’m angry with Chelsea star Hazard

Claude Puel suggests he was infuriated with Eden Hazard on Tuesday night.

Puel's Southampton lost 4-2 to Hazard's Chelsea at Stamford Bridge with the Belgian scoring the opening goal for the Premier League title favourites.

Puel and Hazard worked together at Lille when the star playmaker was just 16 and the Frenchman was proud to see him continue on his merry way.

"I'm angry with Hazard tonight," Puel jokingly said.

"I had the privilege to give him his start when we were at Lille.

"At 16, he was the same. He's having a fantastic career."
