Byron Castillo will sue Chile

Ecuadorian soccer player Byron Castillo sue the National Professional Football Association (ANFP) for great for damages caused as a result of his complaint in which he accused him of using false documents to prove his birth in Ecuador.

This was announced on Friday in various local media by sports law expert Andrés Holguín, who claimed to have agreed with the player to take legal action against Chile’s ANFP after being fully i the FIFA Disciplinary Commission dismissed the complaint.

“He did everything in Byron Chile,” Holguín told the digital program La Clave, in which he indicated that they have not yet decided whether they will seek disciplinary punishment or financial compensation. “We know that Byron will act against the Chilean federation because the destructive comments are against the player,” he added.

On Thursday, the president of the Ecuadorian Football Federation (FPF), Francisco Egas, expected his body to also review the taking of legal action against Chile’s ANFP, seeing that both the name of the institution and its authorities and of the footballer himself.

Since the Chilean ANFP denounced FEF at FIFA in May for Byron Castillo’s alleged improper alignment with the qualifiers, the footballer has lived through difficult weeks, where pressure has caused injury.

Between tears he came to request in the middle of a match to replace him, after which he was not a voluntary opponent of the two goals Barcelona received in their confrontation against Aucas, where the Guayaquil team was playing for the title of the first round of the Ecuadorian soccer league.

Chile’s request sought a penalty against Ecuador that would allow La Roja to reach a quota for the World Cup in Qatar at the expense of Tricolor.

To this end, the ANFP contends that Castillo presented allegedly false documents at the trial held last year, in which his nationality and his Ecuadorian origin were confirmed, after years of doubt and rumors that he was born in Colombia.

However, the FIFA Disciplinary Committee ruled that there were no grounds to sanction Ecuador, as all of Castillo’s calls to the Ecuadorian team were made using official Ecuadorian documents and properly.

However, this decision can be appealed to the FIFA Appeals Committee, and in the third instance the case can reach the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
