These are intense days in Boca. This Tuesday, the training of the women’s team has been suspended who this Sunday won the Superclásico against River 3-0 at the Bombonera in front of more than 10,000 people. It is after the complaint that he came to the club for “sexual abuse” against the coach of the team, Jorge Martínez. The alleged victim is Florencia Marco, press officer of the women’s team since 2019, who accused the DT of harassment and of having “tempted” her.
The complaint against Martínez exploded this Monday at the club, one day after the party held at the Bombonera. And the management has decided to suspend the training of the women’s team this Tuesday while the situation of the coach is resolved: reportedly, Martínez -who did not show up for training- would be separated from the squad and suspended from his post.
Florencia Marco, a worker in the press area, testified before the National Criminal and Penitentiary Prosecutor’s Office n. 22 to have suffered “various situations of harassment and intimidation” by Martínez and that it was even “to attempt” from the coach at the Casa Amarilla property. That event would have occurred in March 2022.
Marco, who has worked at the club since 2011, filed the complaint on 1 February with the institution’s Inclusion and Equality Department, under the responsibility of the third vice president, Well done Adriana.
As explained by the plaintiff’s attorney, Andrea Lucanglioniin statements a clarionthe following day, the Prevention and Institutional Action Protocol was activated for cases of discrimination, harassment and violence based on gender and sexual orientation, approved in September 2021 and which has been at the center of controversy for its actions in the scandal with striker Sebastiano Villa.
For this reason, they suggested “take a vacation”. He was subsequently granted a license pending completion of the administrative ruling. At the public level, there has been no institutional demonstration.
“This was the fact reported, but from Mr. Martínez’s first day of work, until he took his holidays, the victim suffered permanent harassment”expanded Lucanglioni.
Marco, for his part, is “held back by his family and friends”, lawyer Lucanglioni revealed to this newspaper. “She’s not well, but she’s contained by her environment, by her colleagues and players, think that she’s been in the institute for 11 years and is much loved by everyone,” he concluded.
