Gremio striker Hernan Barcos bemoans fans that attacked him
Gremio striker Hernan Barcos has spoken of the fear he experienced after his side were eliminated from the Copa Libertadores by Argentine side San Lorenzo in midweek- as opposing fans intimidated him by launching an attack on his vehicle.
Barcos, who was one of Gremio's offending penalty shootout villains, told goal.com.br that post-match, he was with his young daughter when the incident happened: "I understand the attitudes of fans, but to a certain extent."
"After the game, I was with my daughter in my arms and about six guys came cursing and hitting my car when I left. There must be respect."
Barcos revealed that when he did eventually get home, he found it impossible to switch off after such a tough loss: "I was with family, talking about everything that happened. I just went to bed at 5 a.m. and lay on the pillow, thinking of all that could have happened."
