Defender Ashley Williams claimed he saw Eden Hazard kick a ball-boy that resulted in the Chelsea midfielder’s red card overshadowing Swansea’s progress to the Capital One Cup final tonight.
Hazard was sent off by referee Chris Foy in the second half after he appeared to try and kick the ball from underneath a ball boy who was laid prone on the ground.
Chelsea players reacted angrily when Hazard saw red, believing he had tried to get the ball loose to re-start play as the Blues failed to make any inroads on Swansea’s 2-0 advantage from the first leg.
“Demba Ba told me the ball boy held on to it,” Williams told Sky Sports 1.
“I saw him kick him in the rib and you can’t do that to a young boy.”
