Allende was marking Estudiantes forward Juan Otero for most of Argentina’s match of the Spanish Cup in which the club won 3-2, and said that he bites the opponent multiple times.
â€œI had to turn to the great Bilardo,â€ Allende said in an interview with radio. â€œThe poor guy [Otero], he made him the head. But what do you want from me? We know that we were supposed to make the game dirty, because a top-division players do not like. He must have hated me, but that’s football.â€
Otero confirmed that he was poked four times and that he told the referee, who took no action. â€œI know it was the game of his life, but it’s still just a football match,â€ he said.
However, the President Pacifico, Hector Moncada, said that the behavior of Allende eclipsed the famous victory of his team and he will recommend dismissal of the player. â€œWe are shocked, it put a damper on the work of the team,â€ he said.
Bilardo, who himself was part of the successful team Estudiantes in the late 1960s, years coached Argentina to victory in the world Cup in 1986 and runners-up spot four years later.
