Cobreloa’s defeat against Palestino closed a week full of controversies within the Calama team, which were evidenced by the images of the strong discussion between a Loino adherent and the team’s coordinator, Margarita Díaz, who has not had a calm step through the capital of El Loa.

Cobreloa’s defeat against Palestino for the third round of the Chile Cup, the first of the season as a local, brought to light the dirty laundry of the problem that exists inside the orange box, with cross criticism between leaders, coaching staff, players and fans. The air is cut with a knife in Calama.

The example is provided by a fan from Copper and the club’s coordinator, Margarita Díaz, confronted with shouts at one of the entrances to the Zorros del Desierto stadium. The official, criticized for a logistical error that forced the team to sleep a few hours at the airport before playing against Universidad de Concepción, was also denounced for entering the field to complain to the referees without being registered on the list.

The leader is one to take up arms, as was made clear in the harsh verbal confrontation she had with this fan at the gates of the Calameño stadium, which was recorded in a video by Portal Naranja. “Primera players sleeping in an airport?”, the fanatic rebukes. “Find out, fine,” replies the leader.

“That’s the downside, you’re a coordinator for a reason, when Mono (Ramón) Tapia was there, that never happened,” continues the fan. “You weren’t getting the mother out of me from above?” Diaz asked. “No, I did not insult you,” was the most annoying response, which forced the intervention of a security guard to avoid contact.

From then on things went downhill. “Don’t raise your voice to me,” the woman said. “And how do you threaten me from there?” “And you, what do you think? Who have you beaten?” “If you haven’t beaten anyone, what do you think?” “That’s what I believed,” said the leader, who ended the discussion with a “bye, bye.”

Another story that decorates a season in which Cobreloa continues to fight for promotion, regardless of the difficulties he is experiencing at an institutional level. At 16 dates from the end, the orange team is sub-leader of Primera B, eleven units from Magallanes, a solid leader in the silver category.
