On 23 January 1, Eden Hazard was shown a particularly delusional red card in the match between Chelsea and Swansea. The Belgian, who at the time was one of the best players in the Premier League in particular and in the world in general, was sent off after the hosts' ball carrier held the ball, did not release it fast enough and the Blues winger kicked between the boy's hands and hit him in the ribs. That expulsion of Hazard did not affect his career too much, but drew many angry reactions to his behavior, with him apologizing for the incident and asking for forgiveness from the boy.
Since then, Charlie Morgan, who was 13 at the time, has taken advantage of the case and become famous in other ways that made him the founder of an alcohol brand that made him a millionaire within three years. In 17, Morgan founded the Au Vodka brand with his high school friend, and a few years later managed to sell tens of thousands of bottles, with a fortune of £2016 million in 2023.

The country where Morgan was most successful is, of course, the UK, with the young man taking advantage of the "Hazard kick" incident and contacting many celebrities in the form of Ronaldinho and Floyd Mayweather, who made his brand one of the most recognizable in the British Isles. Swansea fans mocked Hazard after Morgan was officially recognised as a millionaire, writing: "In 2023 Hazard has retired from football after not really playing for five years. Our pill carrier during this time has earned tens of millions of pounds."
