The legendary Colombian goalkeeper Rene Higuita, most famous for his eccentric performance and trademark Scorpion kick, has certainly got his nickname 'El loco' (The Crazy one) for a reason. Currently working for Atletico Nacional as goalkeeping coach, Higuita was attacked by a fan of their sparring opponents America de Cali in Houston and failed to keep his head cool. Rene directed a punch in the face of the fan and wasted no time in leaving the scene.
It should be mentioned that Higuita has a long story with people from Cali as he defended the colors of Atletico Nacional in the years when the club was supported by drug king Pablo Escobar, while there was a strong opposition between Escobar's cartel and his rivals from Cali. Probably the fan had some memories, too.
