You have to see what Chelsea’s Eden Hazard did to a Swansea City ball boy in a League Cup game yesterday. (You might remember Hazard playing here in last year’s friendly)
How would you distribute the blame is this odd circumstance? All to Hazard? Or does a time-wasting ball boy deserve some, too?
Let’s get to some links:
