Big spending Manchester City only finished 10th last season but are being well supported to finish in the top 4 after flashing the cash this summer.

Hundreds of Huracan fans have demonstrated outside Argentine Football Association headquarters to demand life bans for the officials of Sunday’s title decider, which their team lost 1-0 to Velez Sarsfield.

The fans called for referee Gabriel Brazenas and linesman Ricardo Casas to be suspended for life.

Huracan posted a statement on their official website on Wednesday asking for sanctions against the match officials.

Although there has been no announcement of a sanction, the head of the refereeing body, Jorge Romo, was quoted as saying: “Brazenas played badly so that’s why he didn’t take part in the draw for the promotion playoffs.”

Brazenas apologised on Monday for mistakes he realised he made when he saw TV replays, admitting he missed a penalty he should have awarded Velez and a foul in the build-up to the winning goal which he said should not have stood.

Huracan had needed only a draw to win the Clausura championship having begun the match as leaders one point ahead of Velez.

The defeat cost the club the chance of playing in next year’s Libertadores Cup, South America’s club championship.
