Mohamed: “I was dismissed by the hooligans”
Buenos Aires, September 5, 2011
Antonio “El Turco” Mohamed resigned after the Independiente defeat against Boca for 1-0 and today gave a press conference where he revealed that his departure was forced by the hooligans.
“The decision I took yesterday was for the hooligans. If they had not gone to the match, I had continued being the coach. It was a very clear message. I think what is very clear what happened yesterday, there are no such doubts. It was not spontaneous,” said the coach from Villa Dominico.
Yesterday hooligans entered to changing rooms and played the funeral march. They demanded his resign.
He added: “When a club is not well handled things end this way” and asked to “please the people in the club to protect the players and kids.”
“They were very nice eleven months. But sadly this is a job that ended today. The team is well, three points to get a pass to Libertadores Cup and if it wins on Wednesday against San Martín de San Juan will get chances into the local tournament. There is no football crisis,” he confessed.
