Swansea Boy Ball Appears To Scrap With Celebrating Southampton Players

Swansea Boy Ball Appears To Scrap With Celebrating Southampton Players

A Swansea City ball boy appeared to shove celebrating Southampton players in last night's crucial relegation encounter.

Southampton went to the Liberty stadium with the two teams in deep trouble at the foot of the Premier League table. A win for either side would relegate West Bromwich Albion and leave the losing team in a very precarious position, with just one round of fixtures in the league to go after tonight's clashes.

On 72 minutes, Manolo Gabbiadini put the away side ahead. Of course, the following celebrations were extravagant, given it could be the goal that saves the Saints' season. Football's an emotional game, and it looks as though the Swansea City ball boy got caught up in the emotion himself.

It's not the first time a Swansea City ball boy has made headlines. When Chelsea visited the Liberty Stadium for a Capital One Cup semi-final in 2013, in a game where Chelsea were trailing to the Swans 2-0, a boy ball was kicked by Eden Hazard, after he refused to put the ball back into play promptly. The youngster rolled around and winced in pain and Hazard was immediately sent off. A report in The Telegraph later found that the ball boy had discussed time-wasting before the clash.
