Mazzaro went on to add: "I haven't been to a football stadium in five years, I couldn't care less about Rafa Di Zeo. I am not fighting with anyone. It's all in the past. I was not planning going to the stadium, I was with my family", and underlined his position, stating that his card is marked with Boca president Daniel Angelici, "He's had me under control for a long time now".
The Boca ultra says he feels persecuted and the victim of "a campaign against me and my family".
