Tigre coach Nestor Gorosito: 'They pulled two guns on us'

Tigre coach Nestor Gorosito has alleged that São Paulo security staff pulled guns on his players at half-time, as more statements regarding Wednesday night's violence emerge.

The Argentine side allege that they returned to their dressing room at half-time, having been involved in a confrontation with São Paulo players on the pitch, to be faced with a group of security guards ready to exact retribution.

"They pulled two guns on us, the rest of the match is not going to be played," Gorosito told Fox Sports.

"They ambushed us and one of them pulled out a revolver and put it against [goalkeeper] Damian Albil's chest. Their security and police also hit us, there were around 20 of them."

Details of what exactly occured remain sketchy, but it appears that following the confrontation between the players, Tigre's squad were forced back into their changing room where they were involved in an incident with security personel.

The Military Police have confirmed that an altercation took place, but both they and São Paulo security staff have insisted that no guns were present.

Argentine media has since shown videos and photos of the blood-stained dressing rooms, with players alleging they were hit with sticks by the Brazilian security team.
