Fans of Brazilian Soccer Team Fluminense Invade Team’s Practice, One Punches Player: Video



Fluminense fans are not happy with their team’s play as of late. Following two home losses to fellow Brazilian sides Corinthians and Santos, fans decided they’d had enough and visited the team during practice. Supporters chanted and swore at players throughout the training session, claiming the players were not trying their best and were more worried about nightlife than their play.

Eventually, around 30 fans rushed the field, with one man throwing punches at midfielder Diguinho, who quickly ran back inside the locker room. Conflicting reports have come out about this invasion, as the fans claim that security guards fired warning shots into the air, but the club denies this, saying their employees have no guns.

Practice continued later on, but fans still continued to argue with club officials.

One employee, Marcelo Penha, said there would be extra security in the future and added:

We understand that Fluminense supporters are not satisfied with recent results but we will not accept, under any circumstances, the acts of vandalism that were carried out today. It’s unacceptable that the players are attacked by vandals, especially at their place of work.

And that concludes today’s reminder of why Brazilian soccer fans are crazy.

    Wheewww! I really can't understand why fans resort to this bad habit when in fact the name sports is dealing with “sportsmanship” in general.

    This was really a shame. I am a Fluminense fan and I believe these acts actually don't represent the 9 million supporters of this great football club. We are known for our beauty (despite some of the supporters in the video), resolute support, politeness and education; people bring their families to the matches Flu plays; it's a club mostly formed by the higher social classses of Rio, and also of Espírito Santo and Santa Catarina states. These facts really put some dust in our reputation, but is undeniable that the team, players, directory and administration don't make justice to the past of glories and perfection (check the Olimpic Cup) of the pioneer of the “carioca” soccer – they only care about their own interests. It is outrageous and, despite it's not a justification for vandalism, vandalism and assassination (not for real, of course) is the temporary desire of many fans, including myself, while watching the matches.
