The 70-year-old, who has been linked with the Bayern Munich job, currently works as TV pundit for beIN SPORTS.

"I feel we have not seen the Hazard we know from England yet," Wenger said.

"He was not physically fit after he was injured. He's not a player who is usually impressed by anything.

"But he looked to me that he (doesn't have) the same confidence he had at Chelsea. He's not a type of guy to be (awestruck).

"I think it was more down to physical reasons. He came too heavy, what you read in the papers.

"If you want to make a horse lose a race, you put two kilograms on a horse of 500 kilograms and it's enough."
