“When that dog went to lay down, you could tell by his body language he has already been beaten or abused at some point in his poor life; probably a street dog!. I hope someone had the heart to go after the dog & save it. I’m so glad this bxxxxxd got expelled, but he really should be charged with animal abuse; anyone else found doing it would be charged! Imagine, if he can do this to a dog in public, what is he capable of doing behind closed doors??”
The dog wandered onto the pitch and submissively lay down on the grass. He got back up and trotted around.
Jimenez, who had been speaking with a referee, noticed the dog and rushed over to it. He grabbed the dog around the throat, and forcefully flung it at the chain link fence. The dog bounced off, and miraculously, got up and trotted away.
Jimenez was initially given a red card for his despicable action, which got him sent off and expelled for three games.
The incident was captured on video and incited worldwide outrage. After consideration, the Argentine club permanently expelled Jimenez.
“The Executive Committee of CS Bella Vista [have decided that], by violently throwing a dog that had entered the field of play while the game was in progress, our club cannot protect the human and sporting image of Jose Antonio Jimenez, which has been damaged by his incomprehensible attitude,” a club statement read. “In accordance with the Committee’s Book of Proceedings, we have cancelled his registration from our roster.”
Though Jimenez may find himself on another team in the future, he will do it without fans.
