Taylor: Red card sufficient punishment

Published 1 Comments

Professional Footballers' Association chief executive Gordon Taylor does not believe Eden Hazard should face additional punishment after being sent off for kicking a ball boy during Chelsea's Capital One Cup semi-final second leg at Swansea.

The Football Association is reviewing footage of the incident and the Belgian's automatic three-match ban can be increased in "exceptional circumstances".

But Taylor told Press Association Sport: "There is obviously a process which the FA have to go through and it is up to them what they decide. But I don't think the young lad involved would want to see Hazard punished further."
