This saturday Gymnastics and Fencing of La Plata defeated 4-2 a Banfield on the tenth date of the second division of the futsal feminine of the GRANDPA.

The curious thing about the meeting was that the four goals of Gymnastics were deliberate own goals by the players of the Drill.

“These were the goals that Banfield made in his own goal during Saturday’s game, which ended 4-2 in our favor. Given what happened, our Institution will present a report at AFA “wrote the Futsal Gymnastics Twitter account.

Eight minutes from the end, Banfield was winning 2-0, but at that moment the girls seemed to have agreed to something and four goals were scored against. “If they are going to play like this,” said one of the women in the stands.

“Gymnastics won! We are happy to add the 3 points but not because of how we did it. Banfield made THE 4 GOALS AGAINST! We do not celebrate these unsportsmanlike conduct ”, He later noted Gymnastics in his nets.

Apparently, the Banfield players decided to lose the game to avoid a hypothetical cross with Estudiantes de Caseros in the playoffs, one of the strongest teams of the promotion.

Finally, this Tuesday Banfield announced the dismissal of the entire team coaching staff and issued a statement condemning the attitude of the players.

“After knowing what happened, there was a meeting between the Club authorities and the Technical Corps, in which The immediate decision was made to remove them from their duties and to dismiss them from the Club with immediate effect. What happened in this match does not correspond to the values ​​and sports and behavior practices promoted by Club Atlético Banfield, for which we apologize to the rival team, the authorities and the more than 200 players who practice Futsal in our institution and we promise to take the necessary measures so that this does not happen again ”, says the letter.
