Spain turns away Argentine fan in Libertadores crackdown
MADRID (AP) — Spanish police have deported an Argentine fan who arrived in Madrid for the final of the Copa Libertadores, saying he has a long criminal record.
Spanish private news agency Europa Press reported Mazi Mazzaro was turned away at Madrid airport late Wednesday. The agency cited on Thursday unidentified police sources who described Mazzaro as dangerous, without elaborating.
The second leg was moved to Spain after it was postponed twice because of fan violence in Buenos Aires.
