In the match Marathon vs. Olympia, there was an excessive tackle by one of the protagonists, which quickly went viral on social networks.
Game 8 of the Honduran National Soccer League was in the news, not because of a great play or a historic win, but because of the brutal kick he threw. Andre Orellana Olimpia won the marathon 1-0 at the Honduras Classic.
In the 43rd minute of the second half, when the game was in its final stages, Orellana committed an unprecedented violation that injured not just one but two Olimpia players and clearly earned him a red card.
Orellana’s victims are Germán Mejia and Carlos Pineda the culprit in this incident is playing in Marathon, but is oddly a former teammate of his, as he is on loan from Olympia.
The sanctions imposed on those responsible for the hard kicks against Mejia and Pineda have not yet been revealed, but it is known behind closed doors that it will be a harsh punishment for the 21-year-old defender.

Nevertheless, Orellana expressed regret for the tackle after the final whistle and apologized to his rivals and to Olimpia coach Pedro Troglio, who defended him after the incident. .
“I think it was a winning play because of the momentum and the courage to play, but that’s not the case at all.” “I have already talked to Professor Trolio and to Mejia, my father.” he declared.
Similarly, he added: “Mejia told me that nothing is happening to me, that he loves me, that it’s part of the game, that I should keep working and not lose my DNA, that I have a lot of work to do. We will continue to grow. I also consulted with my teacher. We would also like to apologize to both the Marathon and Olympia organizations. ”
Finally, Orellana confessed to his conversation with Trolio. “My teacher told me to calm down, that he appreciated me, that this was a growing experience.” .
