Gun points to quick exit for Hernandez

Uruguayan forward Abel Hernandez has talked of his horror after he was robbed at gun-point while returning from training with Palermo.

Just days after joking that Inter Milan were going to sign him, Hernandez was given a good reason for leaving when he was approached by a man armed with a pistol while sitting in his car. The man threatened Hernandez by putting the gun in his mouth and robbed him of a watch and a pair of earrings.

"I'm happy at Palermo," said the player, somewhat unconvincingly. "I've never had any problems with the city, this is just one regrettable incident."
