The ball boy at the centre of the Eden Hazard rib-kicking controversy has briefly broken his silence. He tweeted;
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?"
Eden Hazard told Chelsea TV he thought he "kicked the ball and not the boy" during the Capital One Cup semi-final and apologised for the incident.
Please note Hazard's words are translated into English immediately after every answer.
