The headlines around the world read: Hazard’s terrible kick; Hazard’s ball boy kicked a black eye for a beautiful game, a silly footballer and a silly boy!
Surely by now you know the story: in the league cup between Swansea City and Chelsea FC the ball boy of Swansea tried to lay on the ball in order to waste time and Eden Hazard handled it by kicking at him.
Hazard’s actions cannot be defended, but he is not the only one to blame. Sadly, the ball boy also destroyed the beautiful game. What was discovered later was the ball boy’s twitter account where he posted: The king of all ballboys is back making his final appearance #needed #for #timewasting”.
So his intentions were clear. That the ball boy’s father is the biggest shareholder in Swansea doesn’t make matters any better.
Clearly, Hazard didn’t make the right decision by kicking but I still place the blame on the little boy named Charlie Morgan, who, by seeking fame, managed to get one of the world’s greatest soccer players to embarrass himself and his club.
