Very Sore Losers

by Nigel Assam

Following a recent post about River Plate’s fans invading the pitch, this time, after the team’s loss in the second leg playoff to Belgrano, violence erupted among its fans. One devastated supporter cried, “Traitors! They kill your soul. It’s crazy. They kill your soul.” 

Prior to the chaos outside, Belgrano’s players fled the pitch after their victory, unable to celebrate promotion to the Argentine’s top division, as River’s home supporters pelted them with objects. Even River Plate’s players, as shown in the video, were escorted off the pitch under heavy security.
