The ball boy involved in the incident that saw Chelsea star Eden Hazard sent-off in tonight’s Capital One Cup semi-final had admitted in pre-game tweets that he planned to use timewasting tactics.
Charlie Morgan was kicked by Hazard as he lay on top of the ball in the latter stages of the match.
But at 5.30pm this evening he was already hatching a plan to help run down the clock.
He tweeted: “The king of all ball boys is back making his final appearance #needed #for #timewasting.”
Despite implying that he’d been brought back by Swansea specifically to waste time, a follow-up tweet revealed that another ball boy had been unable to travel due to snow.
But Morgan added: “I am ballboy player manager tonight and will be playing myself behind the home goals each half.”
