Chelsea winger Eden Hazard will be spending some extended time on Chilligan’s Island after the Belgian soccer star was charged by the English Football Association for blatantly kicking a ball boy during an FA Cup semifinal match against Swansea City.
Hazard faces a lengthy suspension and will miss at least the next 3 matches as he attempts to appeal his case and the harsh penalty.
Although there is no excuse for Hazard kicking the ball boy, there was always no reason for the ball boy to try and dive on the ball like it was a fumble or something, preventing Hazard from trying to get the ball back in play as soon as possible.
And the ball boy did put some extras on it, pretending to be in agonizing pain for a kick that didn’t appear to be that hard. It is soccer though, so even ball boys know how to flop.
