Claudio Borghi, in statements given in recent days to the program ‘Todos Somos Técnicos’, from ‘TNT Sports’, in Chile, said that about five years ago, in a match in Colombia, Domínguez was involved in a particular situation.

“As I was coach of the League (of Quito) we went to play a game in Colombia and many people came to greet him (Domínguez) at the hotel, he caught my attention and I asked him if he had many relatives there, and he told me: ‘Teacher, I’m Colombian’”, Borghi said.

“Later, when reviewing his background, I saw that playing for the League he played as an Ecuadorian, he was suspended for two years and appealed, for which he was only suspended for six months. So it wouldn’t be the first time”, added the Argentine.

Indeed, in December 2007, the Ecuadorian Football Federation sanctioned Domínguez for altering his identity document.

“I hear that Castillo did not have an (Ecuadorian) identity card, he cannot go into any locker room; if he is Colombian, as stated in the investigation, it would be (a case of) forgery of documents and that is more serious”, concluded Borghi, referring to the case of the moment.
