Striker Miller Bolaños has faced criticism in Ecuador after a leaked recording showed him refusing to accompany a minor because it wasn’t his son.

Emelec had a successful night of presentations last Saturday as he beat Guayaquil City 2-0 for Explosión Azul 2023. The electric board stayed thanks to goals from José Alberti and the win in the friendly Miller Bolanosalthough the latter was embroiled in controversy after a video came to light showing him refusing to take to the field accompanied by a child like the rest of his teammates did.

A recording of the moment when the blue team prepares to jump onto the field of George Capwell Stadium was published on social networks. Every footballer was waiting in the dressing room tunnel with a kid or two; However, when it was Bolaños’ turn to close the line, he refused to do the same.

“If I’m not dating my son, I’m not dating another man either,” said the player. At the urging of one of the leaders of the activity, he repeated his refusal: “No, no. I don’t date anyone. I’m not dating my son, I’m dating someone else. ”

The event had a major impact on the Ecuadorian press. Media such as El Comercio de Ecuador, Metro or Studio Fútbol criticized the attitude of the 32-year-old striker, who came from Chinese football as a reinforcement for this season.
