Eden Hazard escapes extended ban for kicking ball boy

Paul Hirst

THE Football Association has decided against extending Eden Hazard's ban for kicking a ball boy during Chelsea's Capital One Cup semi-final against Swansea.





Hazard was sent off for kicking 17-year-old Charlie Morgan as he attempted to retrieve the ball during the Blues' 0-0 draw at the Liberty Stadium last Wednesday.



It had been suggested that the FA were considering handing down a lengthy suspension to the Belgian, but English football's governing body today ruled that the usual three-game ban for violent conduct should stand instead.
