|"The five suspended players disrespected our teammates and fans" - Chile's Mauricio Isla|
Chilean international and Udinese wing back Mauricio Isla spoke out to Chilean website Redgol about the dreaded incident in reference to "the five" two weeks ago in the national team training camp in Santiago prior to their respective World Cup qualifying matches.
"It was a lack of respect of everybody in the squad. It was a hard, difficult and unanimous decision from all of us to expel them but we have a way to behave, this is a representative and elite national team", revealed Isla.
Isla (pictured) also revealed that Jorge Valdivia, Jean Beausejour, Gonzálo Jara, Carlos Carmona and Arturo Vidal had been involved in prior incidents previously.
"We, as teammates cannot forgive them repeatedly although they are all important and key players to us, the rules are for everybody and we must respect that".
