Laudrup eager for Swansea to move on from ball-boy row

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup is eager to move on from last week's ball-boy incident with Chelsea.

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup is eager to move on from last week's ball-boy incident with Chelsea.

Laudrup believes the apologies exchanged between Hazard and Morgan after the game mean no further action is necessary, and feels the incident has been blown out of proportion.

He said: "There was a lot of talk about the ball boy. I went to Denmark for a couple of days and he was very famous and in the national news on television.

"There was a lot of spotlight there but we have to go on and carry on. Things got a little out of proportion in the following days. There were mistakes on both parts, but obviously you cannot kick anyone.

"But I said after the game at the press conference that what happened showed he (Hazard) is a good boy, he said sorry just after the game.

"He has had his three-game ban and let's carry on and not go too much into it, it's in the past and that's that, let's move on.

"After the game (Chelsea) took the boy into the dressing room, they had (John) Terry, (Frank) Lampard and Hazard there and he said sorry, just after they lost a semi-final. That was very positive for me.

"If they can do that, the persons involved, then the rest of us can move on as well."
