Real Madrid’s worst fears were confirmed on Saturday night at El Sadar. Icy field strange and difficult game, icy atmosphere with which it was difficult to enter the game … It was a perfect storm of adversity that ended in a draw. Including what happened the day before in which the workforce was forced to be blocked for four hours inside a plane already on the Barajas runways and then take off in the middle of the blizzard and arrive in Pamplona at 00:00. As was logical after the draw the protagonists, especially Zidane and Courtois openly charged against LaLiga.
“The game should not have been played,
The French coach with a very serious gesture much more than usual. This is not a football match, we did not see a football match. Playing like this is very difficult but in the end, they have made the decision to play. Everyone in the squad is upset but I speak because I am the coach Courtois was much more forceful We are human, not a show that always has to play. We are not puppets. We have arrived at the stadium on a road full of snow. We must look for the safety of the people, we also have a family. It is unfortunate what LaLiga has done.
However, sources from the employers point to this newspaper that Real Madrid did not officially request the postponement of the meeting at any time. The position of the club is very different and already known. I would have preferred that the match be suspended beforehand, which contradicts what LaLiga has said or in the worst case, that it would have been played at noon on Saturday when the snowstorm that fell on Pamplona was giving its first blows. Already at night at nine Madrid’s worst forecasts were confirmed El Sadar became a kind of trap beyond the team not finding the mechanisms to get out of it. With regard to the time change, LaLiga hides that it was impossible because of international television broadcasts.
The Madrid expedition had to stay after the draw,
in addition to the concentration hotel in Pamplona licking their wounds. Barajas airport has announced its closure until Sunday afternoon at least and beyond that circumstance, it is not clear that transportation from the airport itself to the soccer players’ private homes is feasible, since the abundant snow fell in Madrid it will turn into dangerous ice in the next few hours. The white leaders were even considering the possibility of Madrid flying directly to Malaga, where next Thursday they have to play the semifinal of the Super Cup against.
