Redknapp unhappy with ball boy behaviour

Published 1 Comments

Harry Redknapp has absolved Chelsea's Eden Hazard of blame for his red card against Swansea, instead branding the actions of the ball boy involved as "disgusting".

Hazard was sent off by referee Chris Foy for kicking Charlie Morgan in the closing stages of Wednesday night's Capital One Cup semi-final second leg at Liberty Stadium. The Belgium playmaker lost patience when the 17-year-old ball boy refused to hand over the ball after it had gone out for a goal-kick.

Morgan fell to the ground as Hazard attempted to get the ball from him, with the 22-year-old then trying to kick it from under him but appearing to instead make contact with the youngster. And QPR manager Redknapp said: "Hazard toe-poked the ball under the boy's body. Why is the kid lying on the ball in the first place?"
