Under the president's account, the supporters posted: "We want the players to feel the shirt, the poor management of the club has been a cancer in this institution.

"Starting with this account, we're going to take back our club and our badge. This account has been taken over by true fans of Club Deportivo Veracruz. Stop tarnishing the badge!"

The messages were followed with the hashtags #we'vehadenough and #I'llbethereforyou.

The club released a statement two hours later confirming that the president's account had been hacked and they were working on solving the problem.

Veracruz have lost three of their opening four matches this season and find themselves at the bottom of the league table.
