Peruvian Football Rocked By Violence

Peruvian football was rocked after the death of  Walter Oyarce at Sunday’s Clásico between Alianza Lima and Universitario.  Oyarce, fan of Alianza Lima was sitting in the VIP section at the Estadio Monumental when he was attacked and he plunged to his death this past Saturday.

David Sánchez Manrique and “El Cholo” Payet, two ultras that are part of the Trinchera Norte faction called La Turba found their images spread on every newspaper in Peru.  Rumors are that Manrique, the son of a very successful businessman, finds himself in the United States.

The Peruvian minister of the interior Oscar Valdés mentioned that the police had eight key witnesses in the investigation.  To Valdés, Peruvian president Ollanta Humala also calls for all the powers that the authorities have

at their disposal to bring in the accused to justice.

Outside of the obvious issues in Peruvian football and seeing that the violence is the biggest problem right now, there is an internal debate going on regarding the adjudication of responsibility in these types of events.   In this particular case, the blame has to be placed on Universitario as they were the ones that were responsible for the safety of the public in this specific event.
