Perea has spoken out following the incident, claiming he didn’t intend to expose himself to the world.
‘I was fixing my Lycra, I had that space,’ he told Colombia’s Win Sports TV. ‘When I enter [the pitch], I enter it to play and not to be aware that a camera can see me. They are synonymous with emotions that move.
‘I am a human being and I only tried to accommodate my Lycra, my intention was not to show my private parts.’
According to TMZ Sports, various supporters were enraged by Perea’s brazen display as his private part were shown on the TV broadcast, with many calling for him to be punished, while others urged the club to swiftly remove him from the squad.
