Four days have passed since Real Madrid’s bumpy trip to PamplonaThe least of that game seems to have been the zero draw against Osasuna, or the poor performance of the ‘Merengues’.
The president of La Liga, Javier Tebas defended himself of the claims against him for not suspending the match of day 18 due to a winter storm, “What has bothered me the most is the version that has been given of Real Madrid’s trip ”he declared.
Tebas insisted that “if AENA says that there is no possibility of taking off Real Madrid would not have taken off “ and that “The final decision to travel is made by Real Madrid”.
“I don’t know the information that Zidane had. I have seen so many excuses that the coaches have given when the games they have not this will be one more“, Tebas adapted in an interview for TVE, after the technician spoke of the convenience of having postponed the meeting to its conclusion.
Tebas said that Zidane’s words sounded like “coach excuses when things don’t go well”
