Deportes Tolima won a key draw this Wednesday, 1-1, visiting Cali, in the first leg of the Superliga, at the Palmaseca stadium.
Despite the draw, Tolima’s coach, Hernán Torres, ended up upset, because during the game, he said, he received many insults and even punches.
At the end of the game, Torres appeared at the press conference with a wound on his forehead.
He told what he experienced and the encounter he had with a Deportivo Cali fan.
“This was a coin thrown at me. A very pretty lady yelled things at me and I told her, ‘oh, such a pretty lady with her tongue… cut it off… I told her’. Then Coins rained down on me and he hit me on the forehead,” the coach began.
He then added: “Another fan came to attack me here in the press conference room, and the security reacted. It’s becoming It’s a problem to come play in Cali because of security. You have to improve this. 20 days ago we came and had a problem with angry fans. This is a game. We lost the final, and Cali left Ibagué calmly. It’s not our fault that let’s get the result and people get angry. I’m sorry,” Torres said.

Ask for guarantees
In addition, the Tolima coach demanded referee guarantees for the second leg, on February 23 in Ibagué.
“I do ask a favor of those who appoint the referees, it’s a referee who gives us guarantees. Please. There is a character who whistles the final and we lose it. I don’t want to say names. You saw how It was this game, if it’s not about pants it can get more dangerous than it was, for both sides. We need a guaranteed referee, and lines that give us guarantees. I didn’t mess with the referees again, but please… .”, He said.
