What you said is very dangerous, the image is damaged, we see that if we don’t take action when people are shouting, the shouting comes because they haven’t looked for a solution in the end. It’s much more harmful to do nothing,” he stressed.
“It’s much better to stop the game than to continue to hide it, to let 15, 20, 30 idiots do all this in the stadium. I support (leaving the field). If the player feels affected (by the cries coming from the stands), of course I would encourage him (to leave the field)”, he added.
