Saint-Etienne’s Nolan Roux Kicks Ball at Ballboy’s Face (Video)

Nolan Roux kick ballboy face

I’m not sure if Saint-Etienne’s Nolan Roux was still trying to avoid conceding a corner kick, or if he was just frustrated by the fact that he had failed to keep the ball in play.  Either way, the result was not a pleasant one for this ball boy who was working the sideline of Thursday’s Europa League match against ASA Targu Mures—which St Etienne lost, 2-1, but still advanced to the next round thanks to a 4-2 aggregate victory.

Here’s the play:

This was one of Nolan Roux’s first games for St Etienne since leaving Lille to join the team in the offseason.  I think it’s fair to say that kicking the ball in your ballboy’s face is probably not the best way to endear yourself to your new team’s fans.
