You can file this in the “crazy South American brawl” section.
The crazy scenes below occured after Boca Juniors’ 2-1 defeat to Tigre in the Argentinian Clausura on Sunday night.
For some bizarre reason, the Boca coach was parked in the Tigre supporters car park and all hell broke loose as they boarded to return to Buenos Aires.
Boca striker Santiago “the Tank” Silva, Rolando Schiavi and Franco Sosa all confronted Tigre fans and the police were forced to fire rubber bullets in the air to disperse the crowd.
The press in Argentina have blamed Boca coach Julio César Falcioni for his inflammatory post-match comments, where he blamed the referee for both of Tigre’s goals.
