The Guatemala soccer league is calling on the government to provide extra security and vigilance after the killing of a team’s vice president/manager Noe Gomez.
Noe Gomez worked for the Xinabajul team club located in the northern part of the country. The team is having a bad season and currently is at the bottom of the Guatemala soccer league rankings. Two days ago Gomez was shot to death after leaving a team meeting.
Now the club’s president Mauro Rodriguez is receiving death threats and is under police protection – he is not attending any club games or meetings.
Last November a soccer league player, Carlos Vasquez, was threatened and then killed with his body found chopped into pieces that were left in 5 garbage bags.
