The passion in South American football has no age limit.
A furious grandma is going viral for a bloodthirsty rant about an opponent’s celebration against her team, Huracan.
The game in question was a Primera Division fixture between Huracan and Estudiantes. Both sides were looking to maintain their winning start to the new league season in what was an entertaining fixture.
Visiting side Estudiantes took the lead early in the first half, through a smart half volley from Fernando Zuqui. In a fiery game that included six yellows and one red card, Huracan equalised from the penalty spot just before half-time.
However, the home team were not level for long. Estudiantes scored two goals in the first ten minutes after the break and held onto their lead. Even Jorge Morel Barrios’ red card could not deny them the victory.
Huracan grabbed a late goal to make it 3-2. But, it wasn’t enough to prevent the visitors from claiming the victory.
As a result, Estudiantes are now top of Primera Division Group B. After the loss, Huracan are now eighth and will look to get back to winning ways against Arsenal.
Estudiantes’ third goal, a rebound header from striker Leandro Diaz, caused quite the reaction from a gangsta granny.
Grandma’s viral rant
Celebrating his strike, Diaz took inspiration from Argentine legend Gabriel Batistuta. He fired finger guns at the crowd, which angered the Huracan home faithful. Hordes of fans moved right down to the fences to lambast the striker as a result, with some even launching projectiles.
One innocent-looking individual turned out to be as sweet as a poison pie, as a passionate grandma gave a furious account of the celebration. She was spitting dentures, absolutely seething at the action that saw Diaz receive a booking.
“He can’t do that [the finger gun celebration]. He is crazy!
“We have to kill him.”
Well, you certainly don’t see that in the Premier League, do you?
Grandma’s passion could be misinterpreted as bloodlust. That being said, Leandro Diaz may want to keep his wits about him; especially if he comes across any pensioners in the La Plata region.
