London: Eden Hazard has apologised after his extraordinary dismissal for kicking a ball boy during Chelsea's League Cup semi-final second leg at Swansea City.

Wednesday's match finished 0-0, giving Swansea a 2-0 aggregate victory, but the game was overshadowed by an incident 10 minutes from full-time that saw Hazard sent off for an altercation with a ball boy.

The Belgian international seemed to get annoyed when the boy failed to return the ball promptly after it went out of play for a Swansea goal kick.
