'Unbelievable' - Twitter reacts to Chelsea's Eden Hazard kicking a ballboy

Chelsea's Eden Hazard is in a whole world of trouble after kicking a ballboy last night in the club's semi-final exit.

Chelsea have bowed out of the Capital One Cup, defeated 2-0 on aggregate by Swansea City.

Instead of the headlines focusing on Michael Laudrup's excellent side and Rafa Benitez' uninspired one, they are focusing on an incident at the end of the match which saw Eden Hazard handed a red card.

It was quite unprecedented, and an FA investigation could ensue. After recent well documented events, it is a drama Chelsea could have done without.

If you haven't seen the shocking incident, you can watch a GIF of it here.

His actions prompted quite a reaction on twitter, with everybody from Joey Barton to Rio Ferdinand chipping in to have their say.

Here is a selection of comments:
