I do not know when the passion is confused with violence. I do not know when it was confused that winning or losing is life or death, football is a sport of very good values. And one of the most important is respect and loyalty to the rival. It is not possible that we can not live together in peace, in harmony. We are here because the interest in everything is the development of football. "
"My request to mambos presidents, regardless of whether they have an obligation to defend the rights of each of their institutions, my request is that the message that is sent is correct. There is no place for the violent, they can not be tolerated. If we are thinking that we want something better, we all have to collaborate. The place of football is on the playing field with our cracks. "
"In sport we compete, we compete, there is a winner. But that is not synonymous with death. The presidents have the obligation to demonstrate with gestures and with examples the good values that generates the soccer ".
"The Presidency, in conjunction with the Council, decided to schedule the party, subject to what the disciplinary commission decides. The party is going to play on Saturday or Sunday 9, outside Argentine territory. We understand that conditions are not given to play in Argentina. "
