De Leon radio station FM Del Sol: "Our attacked official [Roca] spoke to the Platense [team] delegate to tell the child to stop.

"However, he [delegate] turned against him, insulting him, before parents joined in and attacked our colleague in a cowardly way.

"Platense starters and subs as well as one Basanez player also took part in the aggression."

De Leon added: "She [assistant referee Fernandez] saw the brutal attack that her colleague was getting and tried to separate them but ended up being hit... she was kicked and punched by the Platense players."
