Miguel Ponce gets into an physical altercation with a fan at the airport

Miguel Ponce got into a physical altercation with a fan when his side landed in Tijuana prior to their game against Xolos this Friday night. Chivas are usually well-received by fans when they are playing an away game but not on this occasion, due to the team's current run of results.

The Chivas defender could not contain himself when a fan told him to display more love for the shirt he represents. Ponce confronted his accuser and shoved him, with the incident caught on camera by Fox Sports journalist Natalia León.

The video also shows a security guard attached to Chivas hitting the fan in question on the hand after his to-do with Ponce.

Ponce apologizes on social media

After the video went viral, Ponce used his Twitter account to apologize for his actions but he also explained that the video doesn’t reflect that he was shoved three times himself before reacting.

After apologizing and explaining what happened, many journalists still voiced their disapproval of Ponce's actions, saying that a professional footballer should always set an example whatever the circumstances.
