Fulham football manager Martin Jol accused a Swansea City ball boy apparently 'kicked' by Chelsea's Eden Hazard of "playing rugby" by holding on to the ball too long.
The Dutchman said: "I felt for Hazard, but you can't kick people. He (the ball boy) was playing rugby with him, so I can understand he wanted to get the ball."
The Cottagers boss added that the ball boy, understood to be 17-year-old Charlie Morgan, was "probably overage".
Jol said: "Our ball boys are between 10 and 12 years of age. I saw he was probably over-age, probably 21. A big boy, you know?"
