From punch to riches: The Eden Hazard-kicked ball boy is on Britain’s rich list with a net worth of £55million
The annual report on the richest people across the country ranked Charlie Morgan 27th on the list of under-35s with a handsome net worth of £55million.
That figure places him between current Chelsea winger Raheem Sterling (£61m) and England captain Harry Kane (£51m).
Morgan, now 27, who was 17 at the time of the infamous League Cup semi-final incident, founded AU Vodka three years later with school friend Jackson Quinn.
Sales soared to over £43.9million in 2021-2022 as the luxury brand became a hit in bars and nightclubs, even garnering attention from Jake Paul after he paid the YouTube boxer $250,000 to get a bottle to have his arm tattooed.
The entrepreneur is said to have not wanted his clash with Hazard to define himself as a Swansea ball boy after the moment in his last game.
Morgan had joked online ahead of the Chelsea game that he would help the Swans waste time and was on the ball when Hazard got close towards the end of the game, conceding a kick from the Belgian that sent him off.
Hazard apologized immediately after the game to the youngster, whose father Martin is a wealthy hotelier and property tycoon who sits on the club’s board.
The then-blues star said: “The boy put his whole body on the ball and I was just trying to kick the ball. I think I kicked the ball and not the boy. I apologize.”
