Kick the testicles from Hulk (Atlico Mineiro) to Willian Farias (Coritiba)
Brazilian striker Hulk for Atlético Mineiro kicked Willian Farias in the scrotum from behind during match three of the Brasileirao match played on 23 April, and his team drew 2–2 against Coritiba.
The 35-year-old Brazilian striker was only punished with a yellow card for his kick and VAR decided not to intervene.
The Hulk tried to justify his kick to Willian Farias by posting a message on Instagram: “It sounds like a lot more than it really is… it was a clear foul and, in my opinion, that of the referee and VAR, It was a yellow card.”
Prosecutors have informed Atlético Mineiro that the Hulk will be tried by the TSJD on May 18 on charges of “physical aggression”.
Hulk faces a possible sanction of suspension by Brazil’s Superior Court of Sports Justice for between 4 and 12 games.

Mining Atlético believe that the prosecutor’s complaint was enriched after Gabigol criticized the Hulk’s kicks: “It is unacceptable that an unfortunate publication on a social network of a rival athlete may have prompted a complaint by the STJD prosecutor.” The complaint would be absurd in any qualification, much less physical aggression.”
