Mateus Uribe has had no problem proclaiming his faith to the Club América faithful, both as a player and also as a fan.
His most recent tweet added more fuel to the post-Classico fire, where the Eagles won 2-0 in the Copa MX quarter-final.
On Twitter, Uribe said: “Still do not know them. Go Eagles.”
