But the model has since denied the rumours on social media, saying “I assure you it’s completely false. “From my side, it’s clearer and I hope people from the club clear up the situation at some point. “The truth is that we have nothing to do with the situation, we are unconnected with what happened.”

Alvarez is yet to react to the cheating allegations but his assistant Ruben Dario Bedoya told reporters: “We came to training at 7.30am but they didn’t let us go in. “It doesn’t seem professional to us, it’s shocking treatment. It surprised us because if a decision is made, one must be allowed to enter and take their belongings. It’s disrespectful.”

Libertad’s lawyer Gerardo Acosta claimed Alvarez had neglected his “power of management over his staff and players”, but did not mention specifics.

He told a press conference: “It has been decided to end the working relationship with Leonel Alvarez and his technical staff for motives only linked with the fulfillment of his contract.
