GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 21 December 2015 02:34 IST

The Chennaiyin FC won the Indian Super League in a most exciting match, but it all ended in a most ugly manner with its captain getting arrested by the police and the runners team FC Goa as well as Goa’s Chief Minister boycotting the prize distribution ceremony.

Elano Blumer, captain of the winning team of Chennaiyin FC, was arrested by Margao police for insulting, abusing and assaulting FC Goa’s co-owner and industrialist Dattaraj Salgaoncar.

He was later released early morning after being produced before the magistrate through a local lawyer Adv Rajiv Gomes.

The incident took place after the match, which Chennaiyin won 3-2 by scoring two simultaneous goals last minute.

Elano walked to the FC Goa dugout after the match and started abusing the Goa players.

The players, along with their coach Zico and the co-owners Salgaoncar and Srinivas Dempo had come to the dugout to receive the awards the FC Goa players were supposed to get.

According to Dempo, Brazilian Elano suddenly emerged on the scene and started talking to the Brazilian players of FC Goa in an abusive manner.

When Salgaoncar intervened to stop him saying that they are consoling his players, Elano elbowed him and said “who are you, f**** off,” Dempo told the media.

As the whole behaviour was very insulting, Salgaoncar said he filed the complaint at the Fatorda stadium police control room.

The police immediately moved into action, arresting Elano under sections 323, 341 and 504 of IPC relating to insulting, abusing and assaulting, after the ceremony.

Watching the ugly scene, Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar also walked out without attending the prize distribution ceremony.

He told the media that he had left after seeing the person like Salgaoncar was abused and assaulted by a player while he was also not happy with the way referees behaved on the ground. is now on Telegram & also Youtube. Kindly subscribe for free & remain updated.
