The youngster had refused to return the ball quickly with time running out in the Blues' Capital One Cup semi-final at Swansea, prompting an angry reaction from the Belgian (Chelsea, Eden Hazard, Other Cups, Swansea City)

Over react much... his own fault for not giving the ball...

His tweet before the match...

'The king of all ball boys is back making his final appearance #needed #for #timewasting'

-.-

Exactly. The kid was clearly time-wasting and he should've just thrown Hazard the ball, but Hazard should've acted like the Adult. People do rash and stupid things when they're desperate and that was Hazard this time.
...still pissed off at the ball boy though.

Hazard should have killed him.

Ball boy shouldn't have time wasted but Hazard had no right to retrieve the ball and should have just relied on the referee to add time on.

Oh come on! If you had a place in a final on the line you would be in a hurry to get the ball back in play as well. The ball boys job is to retrieve the ball quickly and get it back into the game, not to fall on it and smother it. This lad was taking the p!ss. I did admire his play acting though, he should be given trials with Barcelona.

Hazard was foolish for being bated into kicking the lad. Ref would've added the time wasted to injury time anyway so it's his own fault for putting his team down a man.

Didn't actually kick the kid, he toe poked the ball under him.

I think there was a little bit of contact, but you're very correct on him poking the ball under him. http://i.minus.com/ibcN3plD...

Hazard was in a hurry and actually trying to kick the ball from under him, if you look closely.
I'd have stomped hard on ball-boy's spine. If you're going to act like a dick, then don't cry when people retaliate.

I don't blame hazard one bit, I thought the boy was about 12 but it turns out he's 17 and was intent on time wasting. FA should recind the red card and fine swansea for clearly bending the rules. Ball boys should be around 8 to 12 yrs old not one year away from adulthood, Charlie the oldest ball boy in the world should get a real job and start acting like a man.
