Henry Martin revealed why he defended the fan who invaded the field of play
In Club América’s victory over Juarez, Henry Martin defended a fan who had jumped onto the field to ask for the shirt and hours later made a sentimental gesture towards him.
Football frenzy transcends any kind of passion, causing one fan to forget the entire pandemic we’re currently in to jump onto the field and embrace their idol.
One such case, which we have not seen for a long time, occurred on Wednesday night, when Club América was a visitor to FC Juárez, where Santiago Solari would end up winning 2-1.
As soon as the match ended, a fan bypassed security and rushed among the audience into the green lawn to be able to approach Henry Martin and ask him to give him the game shirt.
The attacker, far from showing a level of selfishness, defended his supporter before police arrested him and escorted him back to the stands to prevent a much worse brawl.
As the hours passed, it seemed that this was only another story, but finally the attacker mentioned on social media what happened and revealed the reasons for making this decision and not handing it over to the police authorities.
Through his Instagram account, Henry tweeted, “I saw him with my own eyes,” noting that it’s a position any sports fan could take and that he is highly respected as long as he respects him.
