The revelation about Matera's comments caused dismay at Stade Francais, the French club he joined from Jaguares 12 months ago.

In a statement on their website, the club said: "Following the revelations by certain media of posts made in 2012 by player Pablo Matera on the social network Twitter, the Stade Francais Paris club wishes to note its total opposition to these unacceptable remarks and comments.

"We also want to remember that since his arrival at the club in December 2019, our player has always been irreproachable in his attitude towards his team-mates and opponents, both on and off the pitch.

"On his return from international duty, the player, who has already publicly apologised, will be summoned by club management."
