- It happened in the Rosario derby and appeared to be from Rosario fans
- Rosario defeated the struggling Newell’s Old Boys side 3-0 in the Primera Division
Newell’s Old Boys midfielder Pablo Perez destroyed a drone with a banner that mocked his team just three minutes after the Rosario derby against Rosario Central.
The incident, for which Perez was booked, happened just three minutes after the game. The drone flew into the Newell’s Old Boys penalty area and was initially carried away from Lucas Gamba of Rosario Central.
But Perez took matters into his own hands and stomped on the drone before throwing the match ball on it, for which it was booked.
The Rosario derby between Newell’s Old Boys and Rosario Central was fiercely contested
The banner appeared to have come from Rosario Central fans, as it roughly translated to ‘I knocked you out with a bang and I was champion’.
The other side of the banner referred to different moments in history between the parties – a derby that was first played between them 115 years ago.
To make matters worse for Newell’s Old Boys, they lost 3-0 thanks to goals from Marco Ruben, Nicolas Ferreyra and Luca Martinez. It has been a tough campaign for the team so far as they have won only two of their first 13 games.
Perez, who has one cap for Argentina, was born in Rosario and is in his second stint with Newell’s Old Boys.
