“‘I noticed in this weekend’s Observer that a Colombian player was sent to prison earlier this year after shooting a fan,’ wrote Ed McMillan last week. ‘Other than the obvious Cantona kung-fu kick, are there many other example of players attacking supporters, particularly their own?’ Eric Cantona is by no means alone in his aggressive attitude toward supporters. Javier Flórez was the Colombian midfielder who went too far after losing in a local tournament final earlier this year. The Atletico Junior player shot at a group of supporters, killing one, who chanted ‘weak, weak, weak’ at him as he drove past. Flórez explained he was ‘drunk and angry’ when it happened, following his release from prison on a £45,000 bail.” (Guardian)
