The passion that runs over as a result of football is good if it only stays on the track, but threatening the life of a player is too much for a bad result. In Colombia Deportivo Cali played in Colombia the last day of the regular championship against Deportivo Pasto, where they won with a score of 1-0, but their points were insufficient to qualify for the next round, so condemned his elimination but the worst part was Juan Quintero, because the player tried to kill after this meeting.
According to police reports from the Colombian authorities, Juan Quintero was in his car on his way home with his brother, but on the way he got an attack by two people on a motorcycle that they had the goal of killing the footballer; They fired several times with their weapons, so that the vehicle received 6 bullet wounds and miraculously nobody succeeded in influencing him or his brother; It is a fact that they are not explained, but that they are infinitely grateful.
"I arrived at the apartment when I felt that they were touching the glass, and there were already people waiting for me to shoot me down; gave me shots and reaction like two or three seconds and I accelerated (…) As soon as he touched the glass, he pointed the gun at me and said: & # 39; I killed you & # 39;"Said Juan Quintero to Colombian media.

The first versions suggest that Deportivo Cali fans were the ones who tried to kill the player because he was modest for his & # 39; modest & # 39; step with the team and of course the inconvenience of the elimination, all his resentment against him, it was the footballers who "had worse performance during the championship", so the last days argued.
"They shot at the car when Juan was with his younger brother. La Sijín (Colombian police) was informed of this situation and after he had checked Juan's car, they told him that he had miraculously rescued himself, "he told the local newspaper El País de Cali.
The Colombian authorities claim that they will investigate the facts to confirm whether it was an attack on the footballer because of the sporting problem or whether it was an attack, because the levels of insecurity in the area can not exclude that this is the case, although everything indicates that this was due to the removal of their equipment.
The Deprotivo Cali will have to work hard for the next campaign and not repeat this fact; they reached the last day with chances to qualify for the next round, but although they managed to win, they were not entirely dependent on them, as both Santa Fe and Atlético Nacional had to lose their games to gain access to the next round and not to have achieved them got a painful and regrettable elimination.
