You remember the ball boy ‘kicked’ by Eden Hazard last season during Chelsea’s League Cup semi-final clash with Swansea? The boy has signed off the jacket he wore during the Hazard debacle on ebay for charity.
Charlie Morgan, who sat on the ball when Hazard tried to kick it free, said the money that will be recovered from the auction will go towards Maggie’s Cancer Charity and the RNLI.
The jacket was posted up on ebay auction site along with a photo of pennhill-queen (ebay user) receiving the jacket from Morgan and the following description:
“This is the actual jacket worn by Swansea city ball boy Charlie Morgan when he was involved in the world famous incident with Chelsea player Eden Hazard on 23rd January 2013.
“It was during the second leg of the second leg of the Capital One semi final that Hazard was sent off by referee Chris Foy after an allegation that he kicked the ballboy whilst he was in the process of receiving the ball.
“The matter made world wide news and resulted in Charlie Morgan receiving nearly 80000 followers on twitter and the clip had more than 2 million you tube views.
