Parece mentira que sacaron a la luz pública una demanda contra Salvador Cabañas por daño y prejuicio hace dos años. Considero que la demanda es una represalia secundaria a su batalla contra Club América.
Salvador Cabanas has just received news that he is the target of a massive lawsuit in Mexico. The family of the victim has contacted the services of a lawyer Francisco Carreno who flew to Paraguay to personally present Cabanas with the papers.
According to Carreno, Maria Fatima Vera Ortigoza drove Cabanas’ car while using the cellular phone at the same time. The result was that she hit Jose Manuel Torres (who was the victim) who was riding his bicycle.
The result was an eight month hospitalization for Torres secondary to severe internal organ damage especially to the kidney, spleen, and ureter. The accident occurred two years ago and Carreno has given Cabanas 40 days to respond.
Ms. Vera has an arrest warrant pending for her part in the accident. The following scenario makes me want to think what has transpired.
It is a known fact that Salvador Cabanas was shot in the head in the beginning of 2010 after a dispute with a customer at a Mexican Bar. The dispute was centered on one of his last games with Club America.
Cabanas received publicity while hospitalized in Mexico and while being transferred to Paraguay to continue his treatment. Club America apparently promised that it would pay for his treatment and has retracted its promise.
Cabanas retaliated by taking Club America before the Mexican Soccer Federation of FMF and threatening to go to FIFA.
While I am not defending what his niece did, it is often wandered why the car accident was not settled two years ago. Why did a Mexican Lawyer attempt to revive what occurred two years ago. Is there a statute of limitation in these cases?
I am of the conclusion that the whole thing is a carefully orchestrated attempt at blackmail against Cabanas for attempting to do battle against Club America in the FMF or FIFA.
It is hoped that justice can be served for Cabanas as well as for the family of Torres without the use of blackmail but it is doubtful.
The traditional Super Clasico or Clasico de Clasicos (Super Classics or Classic of the Classics) between Chivas of Guadalajara and Club America took place in the Estadio Azteca in Mexico.
The stadium was packed with supporters from both teams and police to make sure that the traditional rivalry does not get out of hand.
The game was played to determine the ranking of one of these two prestigious teams. Chivas of Guadalajara is in 4th place in Group 1 of the Mexican League. Club America is in 3rd place in Group 2.
During the pre match,,both teams prepared themselves for this all important confrontation. Univision prepared a survey in which 5756 people were asked whether they think Chivas of Guadalajara or Club America would win.
Chivas received 53% of the vote or 3058 out of 5756. Club America polled 41% of the vote or 2369 out of 5756. The remaining voters predicted a tie.
The match itself did not produce results of a goal but it was exciting to see both teams apply pressure to each other. Omar Arrelano in the beginning attempted to score for Chivas but the ball was blocked by Guillermo Ochoa who is the goal keeper for Club America.
Club America also attempted to apply pressure on Chivas of Guadalajara but Luis Michel (the goal keeper for Chivas of Guadalajara) was able to deflect the ball and attempts to score by America’s Pardo.
Daniel Montenegro was able to retrieve the ball for America and pass it to Vicente Vuoso but Johnny Magallon surprised the team and was able to recover for Chivas.
Francisco Chacon (the referee) issued a yellow card for misconduct to Miguel Lavun (of Chivas) for the wrong use of the hand during the match even though there was no handball.
Chivas of Guadalajara and Club America may have inspired high expectations without goals but the game itself was great.
The most valued players were the goal keepers Guillermo Ochoa and Luis Michel for their success in being able to block any attempts at goals from both teams. It remains to be seen what will transpire.
Salvador Cabanas, the Paraguayan football striker who suffered head injuries in a 2010 shooting in a Mexican bar, will file suit against Club America for breach of contract for suspending his pay, according to his lawyer Roberto Ruiz Diaz Labrano.
The announcement was made in an interview with the radio station “Radio Cardinal” in Paraguay.
Ruiz and Cabanas had hoped to take the case before mediation in the Mexican Football Federation (FMF). However, according to both, Club America did not want to resolve the issue of the contract with mediation.
They added that Michel Bauer, director of Club America, seeks to annul the contract since Cabanas quit working secondary to his accident. The annulment supposedly included the suspension of pay and is based on the argument that the injury was not work-related.
Ruiz states that he has proof that the lesions were “work-related” and reiterated his plan to take Cabanas case before FIFA.
Thelma Herrera is another lawyer specializing in sports who was interviewed separately. She declared that there is no case since the incident occurred outside of work hours.
Ms. Herrera also mentioned that Club America has already absorbed the costs of medical treatment for their player, as well as transporting him to his native Paraguay.
Cabanas was prominent in both Club America, a Mexican League team, and the Paraguayan National Soccer Team before he was shot in the head in the beginning of 2010.
The shooting incident left a bullet in the occipital lobe of Cabanas’ head. Cabanas was hospitalized and was able to be rehabilitated successfully until he was transferred to a clinic in Argentina to continue treatment.
Club America paid for the treatments and for the transfer to South America.
I remember that Club America once promised that they would be paying for his treatment for an indefinite time. I think Cabanas deserves justice and a resolution to his problem, but there should be an agreement about payment and treatment.
Cabañas goza de mi apoyo en su lucha por la justicia.
Cruz Azul has just defeated Club America at their most recent showdown in the Mexican League.
The victory which was the first for the club in 7 years since facing Club America occurred in the Estadio Azul in Mexico.
Chiristian Jimenez took advantage of a free kick from fellow teammate Javier Antonio Carmona to direct the ball into the area of the goal net to score.
This occured in 53 minutes of the game and the applause was deafening in the stadium
The previous time that such a victory occurred against Club America was when Cesareo Victorino and Sebastian Abreu scored two goals on February 16, 2002.
The results leave Cruz Azul in first place with 15 points in the Mexican Bicentennial 2010 Tournament while Club America remains in fifth place with 8 points.
Cruz Azul played their best and were disciplined and organized. The only exception was the two yellow cards administered to Gerardo Torrado and Gonzalo Pineda within the end of the game.
Club America managed to make fools of themselves with their lackluster play and lack of discipline. The club managed to play into the hands of Cruz Azul.
The players of Club America received yellow cards which appeared to be five for misconduct. The icing on the cake for the club was the expulsion of Oscar Rojas for using excessive force against Cruz Azul player Javier Aquino Carmona.
It was great to have seen history in the making with these two teams and the well deserved victory of Cruz Azul
Cruz Azul 1-0 Club America

Mis felicitaciones para Cruz Azul por su merecida victoria.
Salvador Cabanas via his official representative Jose Maria Gonzalez has accused Club America of unilaterally cutting contact with him and not paying him nor his treatment.
The accusation was made before the Mexican Football Federation better known for its Spanish acronyms FMF.
The Cabanas legal team has not ruled out the possibility of taking the case before FIFA in case the FMF does not receive it.
The accusations are based on the fact that he is still an employee of Club America.
Gonzalez made his declaration in an interview with the Paraguayan Digital Magazine ABC.
He states that he has proof that there was a unilateral suspension of contact and payment to the FLENI Clinic by Club America against his client.
He also showed ABC the contract between Cabanas and his representatives and Club America. The contract expires in the year 2012.
In order to better understand what has transpired, it is better to go to the reason behind the dispute between Cabanas and Club America.
In the beginning of 2010, Salvador Cabanas was in a bar in Mexico City when he was shot in the forehead. The bullet lodged in his occipital lobe. He was hospitalized in Mexico and underwent rehabilitation.
At the time of his accident, Cabanas was one of the principal players for Club America. He was also going to participate in the 2010 FIFA World Cup representing his native Paraguay.
Club America paid for his treatment in Mexico ad he was able to make a significant recovery in spite of the grave prognosis of an occipitall lobe lesion.
The club also paid for his transfer to a treatment center called FLENI in Argentina and another in Paraguay. Club America did this under the glare of publicity.
Club America also promised they will pay for his treatment during the time that he was under contract. It appears that everything was great while Cabanas as well as the FIFA World Cup was receiving great publicity.
According to a poll released by the US Latin Station Univision, 48% or 428 out of 897 people polled believe that Club America should not pay for Cabanas Treatment since the accident occurred during his time off the field.
The same poll shows that 43% or 389 out of 897 think that Club America should pay for the treatment of Cabanas since there is still a contract that expires in 2012.The remaining people polled showed no comment.
The situation is a tricky legal one which leaves many to have an opinion one way or another.
I am of the opinion that if Club America paid for his treatment (in Mexico, Argentina, and his native Paraguay) until now, they should continue to pay for the treatment.
Salvador Cabanas did a lot for Paraguay and Club America of Mexico. He also helped the people of Mexico.
He deserves to receive regular communication with Club America as well as payment for what happened that beginning of 2010.
The world may never know what could have transpired for Cabanas had he not been shot. The sports world should ask for justice.
