Hazard was sent off by referee Chris Foy after he appeared to try and kick the ball from underneath the tracksuited youth who was laid prone on the ground.

"Demba Ba told me the ballboy held on to it," Williams said. "I saw him kick him in the rib and you can't do that to a young boy."

A 0-0 draw at the Liberty Stadium ensured Swansea set up a final against Bradford City following a 2-0 aggregate win and Williams was delighted.

He continued: "At times tonight it was like a bar fight especially when they were pushing on.

"The team defended brilliantly. That's what we worked on. We wanted to bring them back here and score a goal and keep a clean sheet. We didn't score but we kept a clean sheet."

Midfielder Leon Britton was equally ecstatic, adding: "It's unbelievable tonight. To do it over two legs against a team like Chelsea - tonight we made history.

"The club has come on leaps and bounds over the past 10 years."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
