Chelsea star Hazard: Swansea red forced me to grow up

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."
