Spaniard gets in confrontation with the Press.
New footage has emerged of Chelsea interim manager Rafa Benitez trying to defend the West London club after the incident involving Eden Hazard and a Swansea City ball boy.
The Belgium international was sent off during the Blues’ second leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final at the Liberty stadium on Wednesday after the midfield player became embroiled in a fight to retrieve the ball.
And, after the match had ended, the Spaniard became involved in a heated exchange with a journalist, who said: “I expect you to tell this country now about why Chelsea Football Club have another player who’s badly behaved and has kicked – in a semi-final second leg – a young boy.

“Whatever the young boy did, however brave or bravado that young boy was. You cannot condone that.”
To which Benitez replied: “But do you think that we are not disappointed with the situation? Do you think that we don’t regret what happened?
“Do you want to change things? You cannot. We cannot.”
