Chelsea star Eden Hazard says his controversial red card at Swansea City forced him to grow up.

Hazard was sent off after clashing with a ball-boy and endured a media backlash from the incident.

"It helped me to understand that I was part of a big club and that every little thing, good or bad, is talked about around the world," recalled Hazard.

"That first red card! This is a rarity in my career! Today, it is forgotten. It was a lesson for me."
