Chelsea player Eden Hazard kicks teenage ballboy and gets red carded

Hazard is a moron.

Good quality video: http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story/_/id/1312779/fa-charges-eden-hazard-with-violent-conduct-for-ball-boy-incident

Chelsea's Eden Hazard kicked a ball boy. That actually happened. It's another bit of eye-twitching hilarity/travesty to add to footballing lore, a moment in which a well-paid, clearly irritated player lost patience with the playground antics of a kid on the sideline.

The build-up to "Ball boy-gate" was banal in the extreme. With the ball out of play and Chelsea needing two goals in 10 minutes to remain in with a shout of a Capital One Cup final, the lad tasked with returning the ball to play held on to it and fell on it, wasting so many seconds. Hazard intervened, stuck a boot in and got himself a red card. A fittingly frustrating end to a difficult evening. Forget that the referee would surely tack on the lost time; Hazard's decision to break that fourth wall between field of play and its peripherals rightly earned him an early shower, an impending censure from the FA and a likely ban.

1. The kid who was kicked was also being a dick

He's also clearly been watching Luis Suarez & Gareth Bale judging by the way he made a meal of it.

However, that doesn't justify Eden Hazard kicking him. I don't see how anyone can complain about that red card.

Twitter & Facebook have gone nuts over this with silly jokes.
