La Liga Santander: Tebas: “Simeone said it very well: cold, wind, snow, storm … if the ball starts to roll, the game is played”
The Santander League “Lack of experience, and someone who wanted to recover a player”, slipped in La1
Ehe president of LaLiga, Javier Tebas, I took advantage of his interview in the La1 newscast to answer to Real Madrid for the criticism about the trip to Pamplona last weekend. He made it clear that the organization of it corresponded to the white club, as well as the final decision to leave, when LaLiga offered them the possibility, also, of delaying it the next day.
During the Newscast, some cuts of this conversation were broadcast, which, however, gave much more and can be consulted in the section “To the letter”, of its web. These are the main statements of what was not issued in the news.
“It has been a complicated weekend, but I have to thank all those who have collaborated to fulfill LaLiga’s commitment: from the field operators, managers, players … everyone. What had to be accomplished has been accomplished. be fulfilled in a football league: make every effort so that the matches can be played. And now, when the time comes, the referee is the authority that decides whether or not it has to be suspended. Postponement of the match has to be the last resource that occurs before the game starts. Wanda, the field in Valladolid, in Huesca, in Pamplona… an extraordinary effort was made. It’s the commitment, LaLiga is a commitment: you have to play 380 games on certain dates that we establish. ”
“Postponement is what is requested before and suspend is what the referee says at the time. Postponement is what the referee did. Granada, who requested it when he went to San Sebastian, the RFEF Competition Committee, give us opinion and look. If they had asked us for our opinion on Friday we would have said no, that it was not to be postponed. It was necessary to try to arrive and it will be the referee who will decide, with the conditions of the moment, if it is played or not. Simeone He said it very well: cold, wind, storm … if the ball starts to roll, the game is played. ”
“There is talk in the plural of a topic that was an isolated incident that broke the chains. It was a car of eight. Some 4x4s that we put with chains to collect them all. And it seems that the entire Getafe squad had to push. The specific circumstance occurred and everyone collaborated, pushed. The important thing is that the game was played, the president called me to offer a solution, he thought a little more about the postponement but I told him that we were going to look for them, to get them out. the players there and look … they have won. We are committed to trying to play the games in whatever circumstances. And when the time comes, it is the referee who decides. “
“Athletic club had planned to land but during the journey the pilots decided because the conditions worsened. It was impossible. They turned around and we agreed to see what happened. It was not possible to get to Wanda even to clean up. It was impossible. danger to anyone. “
“More than worried, I have been busy. These things give you experience. I come from an environment with snow many times a year and experience tells you that if you have tranquility, it cannot condition any aspect of your life. And that is what that I have tried to apply. More than a schoolyard attitude is lack of experience. Between that lack of experience and someone trying to recover a player and all that … a Molotov cocktail has been formed and that is what happened. No We have taken it coldly. We are in a very difficult season. “
