TERROR STORIES IN BRAZILIAN FOOTBALL
“It was an unfortunate situation. A total despair. Unfortunately that happened. We don’t have time to all go out together because the people of the federation pressure us to leave the dressing room quickly. There we go taking things little by little. If we went out together, it would be harder to mug“, expressed the technical director of the team in statements released by the EFE agency.
Quitéria Alves, president of the club, added: “I couldn’t sleep thinking about everything that happened. It was terrifying. What hurts me the most is having to have heard from a representative of the federation that we are the ones who are wrong in this situation. It was a horror movie“And about the state of the abused soccer player, he revealed: “She was shocked. She left in a nervous state, crying.”
The Piauí Football Federation (FFP), for its part, pointed out: “The safety of all those involved during matches has always been prioritized in all sports facilities. But, unfortunately, outside the stadiums, all of us are subject to the insecurity that prevails in our society. We are providing and requesting the Military Police to reinforce the police presence around the stadiums on days when there are games to try to avoid unpleasant acts similar to the one that occurred. “
