For now, the cause of this confrontation is unknown. Meanwhile, Juan Camilo Portilla, who attended the media at the press conference after the game, referred to the episode. When asked about this situation, the midfielder did not hesitate to defend his teammates and blame the stadium logistics staff.
“It is unfortunate that at this point this type of behavior is occurring, that is why Colombian soccer does not advance, but rather goes backwards. We must make a call that these things do not continue to happen because it is sad that logistics people do that. It is a wake-up call to compete healthily and to avoid those things that make football look bad“.
It is not yet known if the America players will be sanctioned for these events.
