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 dressing rooms of the Mineirão Stadium in Belo Horizonte.
There, members of the delegation that presented the “Xeneize”, both footballers and leaders of the stature of Raúl Cascini and Jorge “Patrón Bermúdez, clashed with security agents and Brazilian police after trying to enter the local locker room: fences and different objects were thrown from one side and the other, regrettable images that are already traveling the planet.
Brazilian police fired tear gas in the dressing room area, a fact that reignited the fuse: the members of the Boquense campus themselves broadcast images in the hallways of the stadium in which the police repression can be seen.
At the moment where the discussion became thicker, “Patron” Bermúdez shot an agent: “Piece of fucking,” he told him. Sebastián Villa, for example, threw a dispenser, while there were also fist blows from both Cascini and footballers such as Marcos Rojo, Javier García and Carlos Izquierdoz.
For now, Marcos Rojo, Sebastián Villa, Carlos Izquierdoz, Carlos Zambrano, Javier García, Bermúdez, Cascini and the goalkeeper coach, Fernando Gayoso, are testifying at the nearby police station. How will the night end?
