In an act reminiscent of an incident involving Diego Maradona in 1994, Motagua goalkeeper Donaldo Morales shot at reporter Saul Carranza with an air gun over criticism of his performances in the sports daily Diez.

Carranza was interviewing midfielder Jorge Claros after a practice at the Estadio Nacional in Tegucigalpa when Morales appeared with a gun and shot at them, hitting the reporter twice and the player once, according to a weekend report in Diez.

The paper said that Morales later asked Carranza to forgive him but the reporter refused.

It said Motagua president Pedro Atala would sanction Morales.

Maradona also shot at reporters with an air rifle when they were staking him out.
