The newspaper TIME He consulted with Millonarios sources who were at the Roberto Meléndez Metropolitan stadium, who assured that “the problem was not with the Police. When the players were leaving the field, a person, without any identification, a civilian, pushes (Santiago) Giordana. The other players go after the character.”
