New footage appears to show why Emma Hayes was left fuming with Jonas Eidevall

Things got heated after Chelsea lost to Arsenal in the Women’s League Cup final on Sunday.

New footage appears to show the incident that left Chelsea boss Emma Hayes fuming with Arsenal manager Jonas Eidevall.

On Sunday, Chelsea and Arsenal went head-to-head at the Molineux Stadium in the final of the Women’s League Cup, also known as the Continental Cup.

Eventually, a late winner scored by Arsenal striker Stina Blackstenius in the 116th minute was enough for the Gunners to seal victory.

As the final whistle sounded, Chelsea boss Hayes was seen shoving Arsenal manager Eidevall aside in a bizarre altercation.

Hayes was then seen pointing a finger towards the Swede as the Arsenal manager walked away confused.

After the match, it was rumoured that an incident between Chelsea player Erin Cuthbert and Eidevall was the trigger for Hayes’ anger.

Eidevall was also booked for his altercation with Cuthbert, you can watch the footage below.

Explaining the situation after the match, Eidevall said: “It's just we had a discussion before the game where both clubs have to agree to play with a multi-ball system or not.

“Chelsea said they only wanted to play with one ball and we said we wanted to play with multi-ball. Then when it suits them in the last minute of the game when they want to take another ball to take a quick throw-in, then all of sudden they want to use that.

“I only said, 'You guys wanted to play with one ball,' so it's not my problem. But it's all good I think, it was just the heat of the moment.”


Meanwhile, Hayes said: “I think there's a way to behave on the side of the pitch and not for the first time, I've been in women's football a long time and I don't think we should tolerate male aggression like we did today.

“Fronting up or squaring up to a player is something that's unacceptable. I've never been booked in 12 years of my career but I think there's a way to behave on the touchline.”

She added: “He received a yellow card but perhaps should have been more.”
