He reacted with anger, because his team was a few hours away from boarding a plane heading to the semifinal. The president of Colón de Santa Fe, José Vignatti, was “in total disagreement” with the suspension of football. The squad was going to play tomorrow against Independiente at the San Juan Bicentennial Stadium.

“We totally disagree because it should have been better organized – said Vignatti-. They cannot suspend him four hours after getting on the plane. People can stay at home watching the game. The health risk is very low in San Juan” , he assured.


The president of Cólón de Santa Fe assured that the campus “was in a bubble and we had all negative tests, this is a total confusion. The 55 people who traveled had negative tests.”

“The national and provincial measures of Santa Fe were often contradicted. It is a general confusion. Now people cannot even watch football at home,” he said.

“We are prepared for this semifinal but now we do not know when it will be played. In June the contracts of several players, the coaching staff will end and we do not know anything. Improvisation in this country is like that. I do not understand how we bring half of the Copa América to Argentina and we cannot play these semifinals in a place with low risk. But hey, it’s our opinion, “he insisted.
