Tigre urges sanctions for São Paulo after gun threat allegations


Tigre are set to file a complaint with CONMEBOL and urged the body to hand out sanctions after the dressing room incident at the Copa Sudamericana final.

The Argentine side's dressing room was allegedly invaded by security staff and players held at gunpoint during the interval of the second leg match.

Tigre blasted Chilean referee Enrique Osses and CONMEBOL over the fracas and Sergio Massa, mayor of the city, said that São Paulo 'merited a sanction' after the incident.

Club president Rodrigo Molinos meanwhile said his side would file a complaint with CONMEBOL because security conditions were not adequate to play the second half after the locker room incidents.

The Argentine Football Association AFA also said it was assessing the situation in a statement: "We were not there. We are collecting information and surely in the next few hours, AFA will make its position known."

FIFA have already moved to dispel concerns over security plans for the 2014 World Cup.
