Veracruz's call for wage solidarity ignored as Tigres show claws

Veracruz's call for wage solidarity ignored as Tigres show claws”

A minute later, Andre-Pierre Gignac doubled Tigres' lead and although Veracruz soon started to play, they were soon 3-0 down thanks to another Vargas strike.

"The reality of things: not even in Federation Internationale de Football Association you score two goals to your opponent when his control runs out of battery, " said the strikers on social media.

At full-time the Tigres players were sarcastically clapped off the pitch by the Veracruz players, who were visibly furious by their opponents' decision to cross the picket-line.

TUKO.co.ke has since learnt that numerous Veracruz players have not been paid for upto six months - a situation that has led to a lot of discontent in the dressing room. Several Veracruz players didn't know it was going to be for three minutes.

'The players wanted to send a message that wasn't discussed, but they are in their right, ' said Kuri.

Pulido took to Instagram to criticize Tigres players who played while well aware the home team was motionless in protest.

Veracruz's Carlos Salcido made a statement explaining that some players hadn't been paid in "five or six" months, that the team lacked basic equipment like ice bags for injuries, that the women's team has no private changing rooms and that the youth teams aren't given proper nutrition, among a list of other complaints.

While the Tigres players have been criticised for not standing in solidarity with the hosts, captain Guido Pizarro defended his team-mates.

"For them to make us responsible for a protest that they were making to their president I think is an error", said Pizarro.

"They told us they were going to stop just for a minute and then it was three". "It's sad. We are all professional".

Veracruz are now winless in 40 Liga MX games, with their last victory coming in August 2018.
