After the declarations made on Thursday by Dudu Aouate, the current keeper of the first squad, Gustavo Mun??a, thought that the Israeli keeper was insulting him. And on Friday there was a fight between both keepers at Abegondo, everything ended with Aouate bleeding in one eye. As a result of this, both players have been suspended for the match at Villarreal, meaning that Fabril's Fabricio will be the keeper for Sunday's confrontation.

Coach Lotina decided to replace Dudu Aouate with Gustavo Mun??a after the Israeli keeper committed a big error in the game against Osasuna, as a result of this, the Uruguayan has been the starting choice during the last four liga matches and both legs in the copa del rey.

And Aouate expressed his sorrow about the current situation during a press conference that took place on Thursday (see article below), the declarations attracted the attention of the media in Spain and this angered Mun??a. According to a conversation between Aouate and the reporter Alberto G??mez Barros on Radio Onda Cero, Mun??a came to the changing room after Friday's training session and without saying anything first, he punched the Israeli keeper in the face.

As a result of this aggression, Aouate was bleeding from an eye injury. The doctors had to intervene and the wound was closed with six  stiches. Aouate told G??mez Barros that he didn't say anything about Mun??a in his press conference and that he doesn't understand the reaction of the Uruguayan keeper. G??mez Barros tried to contact Mun??a, but he didn't answer his cell phone.

And a few hours later, president Lendoiro maintained a phone conversation with coach Lotina about this incident, with the decision made, to exclude both keepers from the match at Villarreal. The incident will be analysed during next week and the media in La Coru?±a is already speculating that Mun??a will probably be released from Depor during the next few days. For the moment the conclusion is that Fabril's keeper, Fabricio Augusto, will debut with the first squad on Sunday's game.
