Chelsea’s Eden Hazard will regret ball boy clash, says Michael Laudrup
Michael Laudrup says Eden Hazard will "regret" his conduct after Chelsea midfielder sees red following clash with ball boy
Michael Laudrup believes that Eden Hazard will “regret” his conduct after the Chelsea midfielder was sent off for appearing to kick a ball boy during the Blues’ goalless draw at Swansea.
With 12 minutes remaining and Chelsea trailing 2-0 from the first leg of the Capital One Cup semi-final, Hazard lost patience when a ball boy refused to hand over the ball after it had gone out of play.
Hazard attempted to kick the ball our from underneath him but appeared to make contact with the youngster, before referee Chris Foy produced a straight red card.
“I think Hazard, who is a great player, will regret it when he sees it,” said Swans boss Laudrup.
“The ball boy should have let the ball go but he was pushed first and then he kicks him.
“As a player, when you are behind your pulse is very high and sometimes you say and do things, you overreact. But there are some things you cannot do.”
