São Paulo vice-president accuses Tigre: 'There is no proof'

São Paulo vice president of football Carlos Augusto de Barros e Silva has accused opponents Tigre of fabricating their reports of half-time violence in Wednesday night's disputed Copa Sudamericana final.

Carlos Augusto made his comments despite military police admitting that there had, indeed, been some form of face-off between São Paulo security guards and the Tigre side during the interval.

Since the match was abandoned, television channels have shown pictures of blood-stained areas in the dressing rooms, but the director insists that it may be fabrication.

"All this can be constructed. There is no proof to what the are saying," he told Lance. "There is no way of placing responsibility on São Paulo for things that happened due to their own actions and provocations. It's the sad truth.

"They are a team who did not honour Argentine traditions and this is a way of trying to belittle our achievements."

Regarding the accusations of the presence of a firearm, which has been denied by security staff and local police, he added: "It's obvious there wasn't. No employee of ours uses guns, you know this. They are provoking this shameful station.

"They have found a way to deface a wonderful victory."
