Nueva Chicago club president requests leave of absence
Nueva Chicago football club’s president Antonio Fusca asked for a leave of absence for an indefinite period of time, after he received death threats following yesterday's clashes between two factions of the club's hooligans in the City neighbourhood of Mataderos that ended in the death of hooligan Agustín Rodríguez from a blow to the head.
“They threatened to kill me and my entire family”, the Mataderos neighbourhood based club president told reporters as he accused “Los Perales” hooligans gang of “scheduling a meeting to allegedly talk about violence problems during the games.”
The meeting was taking place yesterday's afternoon at the club’s headquarters when it was interrupted by "Las Antenas” faction. Then, the two factions started fighting for prominence within the club when the violence escalated.
Clashes were taken outside the club's stadium and spread across three blocks to end with the murder of twenty-five year old Rodríguez.
