Fulham boss Jol defends Hazard over ball-boy incident

Fulham boss Martin Jol has defended Chelsea star Eden Hazard over his incident with the Swansea City ball-boy.

Jol criticised Charlie Morgan, 17, for hanging on to the ball too long in the incident that led to Eden Hazard's red card for Chelsea.

Jol said: "Eden should have controlled himself but the ballboy shouldn't lie on the ball and play rugby with it.

"Our coaches tell the ballboys to give the ball back as soon as possible, do it quick and don't irritate people.

"I felt for Hazard. I can understand why he did it but you can't kick people."
