Hooligans violent attack on Independiente’s leadership
A group of Independiente fans crashed violently into the executive board meeting and attacked the President of the soccer club Javier Cantero.
Prior to the incidents, approximately 300 members assembled themselves next to the futbol club headquarters demanding the resignation of Javier Cantero, together with the rest of the executive board.
The fans consider Javier Cantero as the main responsible for Independiente’s relegation last week, and the club’s poor financial situation.
A huge flag with the inscription “Cantero resign” was deployed outside, while the police attempted to contain about 150 hooligans that gathered up close the main entry of the club.
