After the controversial elimination by penalties of Boca Juniors in the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores against Atlético Mineiro, with the legitimate goal annulled to Marcelo Weigandt at the request of the VAR, the tension moved to the changing rooms of the Mineirão Stadium in Belo Horizonte, with tear gas, fist blows and possible arrests.
Juan roman riquelme, vice president of “Xeneize” and the greatest idol in the club’s history for his unforgettable passage as a footballer, expressed his disagreement with what was observed in the match and was incredulous with the decisions both in the first leg and in the revenge game.

“I have to congratulate the boys because they prepared well, because they are training wonderfully, they had an incredible preseason … Our people were also very excited. When you win the games and they don’t charge you for the goals, it’s not a question that It bothers me or not, we all have it clear “, Roman added post-match.
“Of course it hurts a lot, it’s very sad. I loved playing the Copa Libertadores, for me it was wonderful. And today we have to be aware that what happened last week in our stadium, what happened in Cerro Porteño, what happened today is regrettable. Ordinary. We are not taking care of the cup. Is losing face“, he assured in relation to the controversies of the last parties. Do you coincide?
