Cruzeiro: Grêmio triggers STJD after homophobic chants from the celestial crowd

The homophobic screams chanted by Cruzeiro fans during the duel against Grêmio, on Sunday (8), at Independência, will not go ‘unpunished’. At least that’s what the board of the Rio Grande do Sul club hopes, which sent, this Monday (9), to the Attorney of the Superior Court of Sports Justice (STJD) a Sports Disciplinary Infraction Notice, with the aim of seeking punishment for the celestial club.

“The Rio Grande do Sul club hopes that attitudes like this are not repeated in Brazilian stadiums and that those responsible are held accountable”, highlights an excerpt from the statement released by Grêmio on its social networks.

In an interview shortly after the match, Denis Abrahão, Grêmio’s football vice-president, had already regretted the episode. “I only see one club punished, so I don’t understand why. It’s fun to hear what we hear here. When Grêmio fans do anything, they penalize the fans. Let’s be consistent”, said the leader.

Referee of the match, Flávio Rodrigues de Souza from São Paulo did not record in the summary of the match the homophobic chants of part of the celestial crowd.

Cruzeiro had already officially expressed itself on one of its social networks, condemning the episode.
