FA charge Hazard

Afp
Sunday, January 27, 2013

LONDON - Eden Hazard is facing the prospect of an additional ban for kicking a ball boy after the Football Association charged him on Friday over his red card in Chelsea's League Cup exit at Swansea.

Belgian forward Hazard was already set to serve an automatic three-match ban for his red card in Wednesday's semi-final second leg at the Liberty Stadium, where a goalless draw condemned Chelsea to a 2-0 aggregate defeat.

However, the FA insisted Friday that constituted an "insufficient" punishment for the offence.

"It is alleged that Hazard's behaviour in relation to a Swansea ball boy, for which the player was dismissed in the 78th minute, constituted violent conduct whereby the standard punishment that would otherwise apply was clearly insufficient.
