The controversy that outrages Mexico: Gignac was the victim of homophobic shouts in the Tigres vs. Lion

André Pierre Gignac is the most commented name after the defeat of Tigers before Leon (1-2) that left out the feline team of the MX Liguilla. This Sunday, some images were published showing how the forward was attacked by the people who were in the stands as he left the field. The unfortunate event became viral.

After 75 minutes of play, the Frenchman was replaced by Raimundo Fulgencio and passed very close to the Verdiblancos fans, who took the opportunity to insult him and throw goals at him. “Put .., put .., put ..” was heard from the stands as the player passed. Regrettable. Some players from León asked the fans to calm down, but they didn’t pay much attention to them.

The Mexican Football Federation is awaiting the report of the commissioner in charge, to analyze any sanction against the emerald team that will play the final of the MX League.

Eradicating homophobic expressions in the stadiums of Mexico is one of the hard jobs that Aztec soccer managers have. In recent months, the National Team was sanctioned with playing without fans after they made the same shout in the qualifying games heading to Qatar 2022.

If the discriminatory cry is reported in the commissioner’s document, an investigation will be opened that could lead to the closure of the Nuevo León stadium for a future commitment.

A few days ago, Tigres was sanctioned with a veto and a financial fine after two people entered the field of play at the end of the first leg semifinal match. “It could put the integrity and health of players and members of the Coaching Staff at risk. Furthermore, taking into account the current health contingency, said invasion represents a flagrant violation of health protocols, ”it was reported in a statement.
