Stoke striker Owen backs Chelsea ace Hazard over ball-boy incident

Stoke City striker Michael Owen dismissed claims Chelsea star Eden Hazard should be investigated by police for his incident with a Swansea City ball-boy last night.

It's already been confirmed there will be no police probe into the situation.

Owen wrote on Twitter: "I'm not saying Hazard isn't in the wrong but I hate to see a person who instigates a situation then cry foul for next to nothing.

"My oh my. What am I reading? People mentioning assault? He shouldn't kick the ball out of his hands but has this world gone mad?

"Both the kid and Hazard were in the wrong. Not having Hazard tried to hurt him though. He just tried to toe poke it out of his grip."
