Wonder if this had been Suarez what the reaction would have been. Probably that he tried to kick the boy and we should dwell on it for about a year.

The boy ALSO apologised.

Frankly, it's laughable the big deal made out of it.
Yes, the "boy" was being stupid, yes Hazard was stupid to lose his cool (something he never does) and try to kick the ball from under the "boy" (because he didn't try to kick the "boy", he tried to kick the ball, otherwise, you don't target the underneath of the guy), but all in all, it was worth a red and a couple of match bans and that's it.

Trying to use the "human being" blah blah blah, is amazing to me.

The comparison with Cantona kung fu is also amazing to me (trying to hurt someone vs trying to strip the ball away), and to be honest I supported Cantona for it, because there's no way players should be insulted like that. Sure he shouldn't have hit the guy, but it was well deserved.
Wow. So Hazard, now well after the fact, after he was seen smirking about it while the kid is on the ground, has apologized and invited him to the dressing room?

Well "never" no longer applies.

at that targetting and the ball business.
