Hazard receives a 3 match ban but the FA could tack on a match or two for kicking the 17 year old "ball boy" who is milking his 15 minutes of fame. For those conspiracy theorists, Charlie Morgan's father, Martin Morgan is on the Swansea board of directors. The "ball boy" clearly made his intentions clear before the match that he was going to play a part in sending Swansea to the Capital One Cup final. And he has not stopped tweeting. Joey Barton has serious competition for the most gas passed in the last 24 hours.
Morgan clearly wasted time and the amount of scorn he received for faking a more serious injury along with his glorified "ball boy" status is richly deserved but Hazard should not be excused for kicking him. The incident overshadowed a pretty pathetic performance by Chelsea given all the firepower at their disposal.
