Poor ball boy gets destroyed by Saint-Etienne striker Nolan Roux

St Etienne

All we can say to this is... OUCH! Bet that hurt...

It's a dangerous job being a ball boy, you're under constant threat of getting the Eden Hazard or Joe Hart treatment if you dilly dally with the ball. 

There's also the fear that you'll probably, at some point in your young career, get hit by something, whether that be a half-eaten porkpie or a football thumped right at you. And sadly, for this poor ball boy during Saint Etienne's match with the massive name that is... Tirgu Mures from Romania. 

With the French side losing on the night to the Romanians, St Etienne Nolan Roux let his anger get the better of him and decided to take it out on... the ball boy! 

Now Roux looked to be trying to stop a corner, but decided that belting it the ball boy's face was a better option. It really did remind us of when poor old Murdo MacLeod got given the business by Branco at Italia 90!
