A high-end car appeared
abandoned and vandalized
in Santa Fe and now the Police are investigating whether it belongs to or was driven by soccer player
, recently separated from the Colón squad.
It is a gray BMW, which appeared in the Altos de Noguera neighborhood, in the north of the city.
The hypothesis that the athlete could be involved in the incident arises from a series of testimonies that say they have seen a young man with similar characteristics in the place.
The vehicle was vandalized, with broken windows, and a rearview mirror and a tire had been stolen.
Brian Fernández had arrived in Colón, but was separated after missing two practices.
As published by El Litoral, the residents of the area assure that the vehicle would belong to Fernández and sources close to the player confirmed that it is his private vehicle, although it would not be in his name since he did not make the transfer.
The last conflict in Colón
Brian Fernández tried, on several occasions, to leave behind his problematic consumption with the intention of starting over.
That was how, at the age of 28, he got a new opportunity in Colón.
An opportunity that last week was exhausted.
It is that Néstor Gorosito, coach of the Santa Fe club, decided to separate him from the professional squad after two consecutive absences from training.
"Brian Fernández missed two training sessions. He did not have permission. I told him I was giving him a chance and I gave him two... that's it. He has to talk to the people at the club to see how he is doing. I'm not a psychologist, I have to give him priority to the group", Gorosito forcefully quoted in the run-up to this Saturday's match against Independiente, in which Sabalero drew 2-2.
Gorosito, who came to replace the Uruguayan Marcelo Saralegui, knew that he could count on the presence of a high-quality player like Fernández, who returned with the idea of "reversing the situation" after a stage that did not even have a starting point in San Luis de Quillota of Chile.
Pipo Gorosito quickly ran out of patience and confirmed that the footballer will no longer train with the professional squad.
"It happened to him many times. I spoke to him as a father, as a neighborhood kid that he is also. It is an issue that he must resolve. I cannot say something for which I am not qualified."
Fernández, a professional soccer player like his brothers Leandro (Universidad de Chile) and Nicolás (Defense and Justice), returned to Colón -where he had been between 2019 and 2022- at the beginning of this year after several frustrated chapters in First National clubs during the last part of his career.
After his first outing from Sabalero, the footballer emigrated to Ferro Carril Oeste, where he had a great performance scoring 14 goals in 23 games in 2021. In those days in Caballito it seemed to find a good way to overcome the addictions that were no longer a secret to voices in 2015, while playing for Racing and tested positive for cocaine in an anti-doping control that led to a two-year sanction by Conmebol.

After his time at Ferro, the striker set out on his way to Patagonia to defend the Deportivo Madryn jersey.
There he suffered another relapse, a cause that motivated the club to terminate his contract after having played only six games with just one goal converted.
It was then that he returned to Ferro.
But there, again with problems on his back, his contract was terminated after seven games in which he could only be on the field in 208 minutes out of a possible 630.

Last October, Fernández was arrested in Santa Fe after attacking a bus with stones.
After the event, the local police arrested him and he was subsequently hospitalized for a month for a psychiatric outbreak.
This year, after his frustrated stint in San Luis, he signed a six-month contract with Colón
