The title of Libertadores Cup achieved by Fluminense ante Boca Juniors At the Maracaná stadium there is still something to talk about, especially on the Xeneize side, which still cannot shake off the opportunity they lost to be champions of the continent.
During the match, the Argentines found a giant window to win international glory after the 1-1 draw achieved by the Peruvian Luis Advínculabut as football is, everything in a matter of minutes turned “upside down” and they ended up falling dramatically.
One of the main players highlighted in the defeat of the blue and gold was the Colombian Frank Fabra, who starred in one of the most regrettable scenes of the meeting. Just when Boca had the advantage of having more players on the field, the defender attacked an opponent with a slap and the referee Wilmar Roldán did not hesitate for a second to expel him.
Without having the advantage of an extra man Boca was left without options to tie and lost the opportunity to win what would have been the most important title in its recent history. Now, the unrest in the Argentine community about Fabra is quite critical and It could trigger his departure from the club.
After the game, several media outlets rated the performance of the native of Nechí and did not raise it beyond 2 points out of 10, then the opinions of the celestial journalists appeared, such as that of Pablo Carrozza who explicitly asked that Fabra not appear in Buenos Aires again:
“I consider that Fabra does not have to return to Buenos Aires after the expulsion he committed, leaving his team on the brink of elimination.”
Then, on social networks they continued with the “anti-Fabra” movement and made it more than clear that they no longer want to see him wearing the club’s colors:
“I hope that today when Frank Fabra wants to enter the facility to train, they tell him that he is no longer part of the club, the mere fact that this character continues wearing Boca clothes is an insult to the fan” -@gasty_kndia
Even so, the remaining time of the contract What Frank has with the xeneize is the point of tranquility for him, but unrest for the fans. The Colombian has employment relationship with Boca until December 2025two more years being part of the club, which the fans do not like at all.
The departure of the coach is also added to the discomfort of the fans. Jorge Almiron of his position as strategist of the xeneize professional team, which could drastically change the outlook for the defender who had been constantly occupying the starting positions.
Now, with uncertainty in the coaching staff and without knowing what direction the board will take, Fabra runs the risk that the new coach will not take him into account for his sports project and will give him the announcement that it is better to look at new horizons.
Since 2016, Boca Juniors has been Fabra’s home where he has achieved the greatest amount of success in his sporting career. In his current record he has six Argentine league titles, one cup and two super cups, but what he still has left earring es some international consecration.
It is the team with which he has accumulated the most games since he became a professional with a total of 224 appearances and he hopes to be able to continue there. Even so, his mistake in the Libertadores final could cost him quite dearly.
