Photo: Chavez is a sore loser
Hugo said he’ll talk to Conmebol officials to Protest the semifinal Copa América Match between Venezuela and Paraguay.
Hugo Chávez took to social network Twitter to protest Wednesday night’s soccer match results between his beloved Venezuela, and Paraguay.
Whether last night’s final minutes of transmission were about sore losers or bully winners remains somewhat of a mystery, but whatever the case, a massive fist fight broke out.
Chávez was sore: Not only his beloved Burgundy Eleven lost the penalty tie-off, and got eliminated, but earlier, the referee ruled off-side an otherwise extraordinary Venezuelan header deep into the Paraguay frame.
“In my humble opinion and based in observable facts “THEY STOLE OUR WINNING GOAL! And I hope with this I’m not offending anybody” Said Chávez through his Twitter account @chavezcandanga.
Chávez who is in Cuba receiving treatment for cancer is governing and approving trash collection project budgets via Twitter, Twitted his discomfort again yesterday morning:
“In all truth, our Burgundy won last night! Paraguay didn’t beat us. Both Fidel and I saw very clear the goal that they robbed us.
“Why the deuce would that referee invalidate such an spectacular goal? In an advanced position any of our glorious artillery men? NONE!”
With an evident load of time on his hands, Chávez continued his Twee-rade, calling on South American Soccer Confederation (Conmebol) President, Mr. Nicolás Leoz.
“I think we have to bring our voices to -–as we have the authority to do so, the Conmebol. Cheers to our great friend Nicolás Leo.!” “Friend Leo, we have to take care of our Copa América! I wish we could chat about this. César (Farías, Venezuela’s coach) spoke with me about that subject of “a few wee things” that sometimes slip up in these competitions. Specially refereeing. Lets revise, Leo!!”.
Leoz told to radio news yesterday that “the important thing is that the tournament is coming to an end, and these are things that sometimes some overanalyze.” The president of Conmebol said he wasn’t feeling well, and watched the game from bed.
Leoz went on to invite Chávez to talk to him about the semifinals result.
