The former player of athletic he stressed that he had never gone through this situation in his career.

“We were eliminated, unfortunately. All sad, upset, but I want to tell a horror scene that I went through in my life and I would never have thought that I would go through it. I was getting close to the hotel and I believe that three or four cars were following me. At the signal, they closed me in and started breaking my car, kicking, crushing, saying I was going to die. That torture they do when things don’t go well. I was sad and upset. Counting aloud, ten people, ten fans, ten vandals.” he said.

“Fans have the right to charge, not the best stage, but that doesn’t justify what I went through. First time in 15, 20 years of career. It’s very sad to go through that. Fans can go to CT, anywhere to charge, curse, But assaulting, breaking a car and tackling terror doesn’t fit in football anymore. There won’t be punishment. Anything could have happened to me. Lucky I met a policeman on the way to the hotel and escorted me. It’s my indignation. they do that when things are not going well. Half a dozen that do not represent the fans of Santos and other clubs,” he added.
