Video: Eden Hazard kicks Swansea ball boy and gets sent off
As Chelsea battled to find a way back into the Capital One Cup tie with Swansea, Eden Hazard lost it and kicked a ball boy in the ribs.
We thought we had seen it all now but we can’t ever recall a player kicking a ball boy before. But video eveidence proves that Chelsea’s Eden Hazard does aim a boot at a Swansea ball boy who was lying in top of the ball.
Hazard was trying to get at the ball as time ran out but we think he caught the youngster instead. We think the ball boy wasn’t deliberately trying to delay the game – not that he was rushing either - but the video clearly shows an ill-placed boot by the Belgian.
Referee Chris Foy then sent him off. Madness.
