Soccer players in Colombia support the national strike
Bogota, May 15 (Prensa Latina) Player Luis Paz of the America de Cali soccer team, conveyed on Saturday his support for the national strike in Colombia and rejected that the Libertadores Cup continues in the country in the midst of the crisis.
On Thursday, the match between America de Cali and Atletico Mineiro for the fourth round of Group H of this competition, was suspended four times because of tear gas thrown by the police against demonstrators outside the Romelio Martinez stadium in Barranquilla. The gas affected the players.
Luis Paz expressed his disagreement with the situation in the country while the government turns a blind eye.
In statements to Radio Caracol, he assured that they were forced to play under the threat of being sanctioned.
Meanwhile, the Colombian soccer championship matches have been halted due to the social unrest in the South American nation.
