Brazilian club Corinthians have strongly condemned the “cowardly” assault on midfielder Luan by disgruntled fans at a hotel.

Local media reported that Luan was forcefully dragged out of the premises by supporters who were dissatisfied with his performances on the field.

In an Instagram post, the player shared a picture of his blood-stained clothes, highlighting the severity of the incident.

In an official statement, Corinthians said, “Corinthians received with sadness and indignation the information that athlete Luan was assaulted by alleged fans.

“After another repugnant case of violence, Corinthians regrets the current intolerance that dominates Brazilian soccer. Nothing justifies the cowardly aggression suffered by the athlete.”

According to local media reports, Luan sustained minor injuries during the attack, which occurred at a party he was hosting at the hotel on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old won an Olympic gold medal at Rio 2016 and has scored 11 goals in 80 matches for Corinthians.
