The Associated PressBUENOS AIRES (AP) — Players with an Argentine first-division soccer team were robbed at gunpoint as they prepared to train.
Jose Lemme, the president of the club Defense y Justicia, said four unidentified assailants entered the training ground on Wednesday and took various items belonging to the players, including cellphones, wallets and gold chains.
No injuries were reported.
Said Lemme: “We’ll have to take more precautions. The police are looking for them.”
The Argentine league is set to resume play on Friday. But this is in doubt because of a players’ strike claiming unpaid salaries from the league. The league is also without a TV contract.
