Charlie Morgan, the ball boy at the centre of controversy after Eden Hazard was sent off for kicking him, has broken his silence on Twitter.

Morgan referred to himself as a "big-timer" on Twitter

The ball boy, who tweeted before the match he was "needed for time-wasting", lay on top of the ball as he delayed giving it back to Swansea goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel, prompting Hazard to kick the ball from under his body.
