The repercussions on the serious complaint filed by a woman against Sebastián Villa for gender violence, sexual abuse and attempted murder stirred up the waters of the debate on how Boca should act in cases of this nature and was the journalist Juan Carlos “Toti” Pasmán who ruled that Juan Román Riquelme, in his capacity as head of club football, should not only prevent the footballer from playing this afternoon the semi-final of the League Cup with Racing, but also to end his relationship with the midfielder. Otherwise, he said, the vice of “Xeneize” would be a “chantapufi”.

Toti Pasman’s editorial on the Villa case and how Boca should act
I think that There are situations that define people. There are times when life puts you between a rock and a hard place and, depending on the decision you make, you stay on the side of good or on the side of evil. You remain as an example or as what should not be done in life if you are a guy with values, with principles, with ethics or morals.
Today the limit situation reaches Boca and it is for Riquelme, because he manages football. I believe that this situation defines the Football Council, which still has time to act accordingly and a footballer who is already a repeat offender in terms of gender-based violence complaints, and with Boca, which has a Gender Department in the club and a protocol which indicates that with just one complaint of sexual abuse, without a formal conviction from the justice, the footballer will be separated, they are in time to set an example and say: “Gentlemen: Sebastián Villa is not going to play against Racing”.

Riquelme has time to talk to Battaglia and tell him: “Sebastián, you can’t use Villa against Racing or in another match. Villa no longer plays in Boca because we don’t want a soccer player who reoffends in acts of gender violence to wear the Xeneize shirt”.

Villa is a double-edged sword: he is capable of winning you a classic at the Monumental, he is capable of putting you in the semi-final of the League Cup with a great match and he is capable of leaving you on the sideline before a classic with Rover in the Copa Argentina and he is also capable of putting the cub in trouble and in trouble with these types of personal situations that are embarrassing, they are a shame, a piece of paper, because if there is a crime that I never want to be involved with, it is sexual abuse, gender violence, and this boy is the second time it happens.

Once you can think that he is innocent and well, let Justice prove it, now… are they two women who want to ruin Villa’s life by lying? It seems to me that this situation does not give for more, even understanding the sporting and economic damage to Boca, because I still think that Villa has things from Mbappé, and I know that it is a sensitive loss for the team, more so being two games away from a new star.

But yesIf you have conduct, if you have values and principles, and what you approved in the club regarding the gender department and it is not for the piripipí (sic), for the sanata so that the women vote for you in the election, you have to say: “Boquense family, we are very sorry, we lost a great player, but this boy does not play in Boca anymore.” You have to be consistent.

As president of the Football Council, Riquelme has to set an example and not allow these situations to happen in Boca. If you don’t, everything they promised in the campaign is blackmail. Just as he once spoke with Miguel Russo and told him that he could no longer count on Pol Fernández because he did not arrange a contract, nor with Molina, he would speak highly of Riquelme, even if Boca loses to Racing, if he makes the right decision in this situation, which is limit. He has time to do it. If not, if Villa plays against Racing, Boca should be consistent and close its Gender Department.
For now Villa plays and is a total disappointment.
