The board of Alvinegro Praiano called those involved in the episode ‘criminals’ and promised to support legal measures for the recognition and punishment of the aggressors.
O Santos issued an official note this Wednesday morning, 15, condemning attacks made by fans on striker Diego Tardelli – the player, after the elimination of the team in the Copa do Brasil for Athletico-PR, was persecuted and threatened by about ten Santos. In the statement, the board of Alvinegro Praiano called those involved in the episode “bad guys” and promised to give support so that legal measures are adopted to punish the aggressors. “On the episode that took place during the night with the player Tardelli and other members of the cast, with threats, pursuits, ambushes and acts of depredation, Santos FC vehemently repudiates the attitude of vandals disguised as fans and emphasizes that they will give full support to that legal measures be adopted for the recognition and punishment of the aggressors”, says the statement by Santos. The club does not recognize these people as fans, but as bandits. The fans have the right to protest about the results, as long as they are civilized”, he concludes.
Diego Tardelli for Santos: 1 game, 27 minutes on the field.
Car broken by vandals who call themselves fans after an elimination for which the player was not to blame!
Note: this stupid attitude is not justified even if he was at fault in the elimination. pic.twitter.com/OpFp0jf4ps
