Club América have made an official complaint to CONCACAF who in turn have opened an investigation after footage on social media showed Julián Quiñones receiving racial abuse from a sector of the Chivas fans during Wednesday’s match in the round of 16 of the Concacaf Champions Cup. The Aguilas spoke out on their social media platforms strongly condemning the actions of the fans at the Estadio Akron.


The Central American governing body responded with a statement: “CONCACAF condemn any act of racism and said it will investigate everything that happened, after a video appeared in which a group of fans of the “rebaño” emitted monkey noises aimed at Águilas player, Julián Quiñones, in the first leg of the Round of 16 of the CONCACAF Champions League.”

CONCACAF also said it will investigate with the cooperation of both teams what happened and said it was extremely concerned about the situation both in soccer and in society.

Chivas condemn acts

A sanction is expected to be announced in the next few hours and for the moment Chivas has limited itself to saying that this group of fans does not represent the majority of CD Guadalajara supporters.

These types of acts and people do not represent our fans, nor the values that are instilled daily within Club Deportivo Guadalajara,” said Chivas.

Club América currently hold a substantial 0-3 first leg advantage in the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions Cup Round of 16 with the second leg coming up in the Mexican capital next week.
