Lucas Ocampos still cannot come out of his astonishment. What happened in the match between Sevilla and Rayo Vallecano, where a spectator stuck a finger in his tail when he was about to take a side, left him perplexed. So much so that when he finished the match he asked LaLiga to “take what happened seriously” and punish the fan in an exemplary manner.

“I hope the League takes this seriously, as it does with racism. There is always a fool. I hope it doesn't happen again, because if it happens in women's football we know what can happen,” he said in statements to the Dazn network.
Finally, he explained the reasons why he did not react against the fan. “I held back because I have two daughters, but let's hope that the League retaliates and that a fool does not stain the Rayo fans,” said the Argentine soccer player.

Sevilla ask that measures be taken against the fan who attacked Lucas Ocampos
For its part, Sevilla asked the League to take measures against this spectator, who has already been identified by the police. He is a minor, whose identity was not revealed.
“Sevilla deeply regrets the incident this Monday in the match against Rayo Vallecano, in which our player Lucas Ocampos suffered an obscene and totally inappropriate gesture by a local fan. “The club hopes that the appropriate measures established by the regulations will be taken so that such behavior is not repeated on a football field,” the club's statement indicates.
In addition, he provides strong support to the Argentine player who “demonstrated knowing how to behave and enormous professionalism, despite the unacceptable attitude of the fan who rebuked him.”

The unusual moment that Lucas Ocampos lived
Ocampos prepared to take a throw-in in attack. While he was looking at his teammates to give them the ball, an unusual situation occurred from one of the stands at the Vallecas Stadium: a young man stretched out to put a finger in the tail of the Argentine, who barely felt the contact, turned around and began to insult the boy.
The other fans who were close to what had happened got angry with the former River soccer player, although some started to laugh because they couldn't believe what had just happened.
The referee of the match went to calm the waters, the fan challenged and the Seville footballer tried again to make the side, but before doing so he left some strong words to the young man who touched him.
