Swansea manager Michael Laudrup feels the time has come to move on from the furore caused by Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard's clash with ball boy Charlie Morgan.
Hazard was sent off as Chelsea exited the Capital One Cup at the Liberty Stadium, after appearing to kick Morgan as the 17-year-old prevented the Belgian retrieving the ball with the Blues attempting to overturn a two-goal deficit. Hazard has since been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association, meaning his automatic three-match ban for his dismissal could yet be extended.
But Laudrup believes the apologies exchanged between Hazard and Morgan after the game mean no further action is necessary, and said: "There was a lot of talk about the ball boy. I went to Denmark for a couple of days and he was very famous and in the national news on television. There was a lot of spotlight there but we have to go on and carry on."
