“The players have to be much more professional and they have to be smarter. What strikes me is that these videos are always recorded with people who are with them. If we notice, this is a video of someone who was at your table […] This has always happened, I am not going to be scared because a player serves two, three or 10 tanks days before the game […] You have to touch his pocket and you have to sanction in an exemplary way ”, Mauricio Ymay of the same medium.

The situation occurs a few days after the controversy of the Uruguayan player Jonathan “Cabecita” Rodríguez, who was harshly criticized for a similar situation, being caught in a hotel room at a party wearing the Cruz Azul uniform.
