Such was the magnitude of the situation that the President of Velez Sarsfield, Raul Gamez, said he was prepared to resign from his post.

Among other things, Gamez said, “club members experienced a tragic moment on Saturday when some cowards fired shots into an area filled with many people, including families and children.”

“Velez employees should not be exposed to something like that. We cannot give access to these dangerous guys. We will review our security measures immediately.”

Velez have taken 8 points from their opening 4 games in the 2015 Argentine season. Their next game sees them visit Quilmes on Sunday afternoon.
