Eden Hazard could face criminal investigation as the South Wales Police follow up complaints by the public regarding the midfielder's altercation with a ball boy.

Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard may be at the centre of a police investigation following his altercation with a Swansea City ball boy on Wednesday.

The Belgium international originally escaped punishment from the authorities after the ball boy, who has been named as 17-year-old Charlie Morgan, decided against pressing charges.

It now appears that the South Wales Police have received complaints from the public "living in Sussex, Kent and West Wales" and could launch an investigation, according to Sky Sports News.

Hazard was sent off during Chelsea's League Cup semi-final exit for appearing to kick the teenager in a bid to retrieve the ball, which Morgan laid on top of when it drifted out of play behind the line.
