The five-time MotoGP world champion Marc Márquez (Repsol Honda) will not go out on Saturday to the balcony of the City of Cervera, his city, in the celebrations of his new title, because the consistory will not remove from the building the poster to support the imprisoned Catalan politicians, The Mayor, Ramon Royes (PDeCAT), has explained to Europa Press.
Due to protocol issues and demands of the big firms that sponsor the pilot, The FanClub asked the City Council to remove the banner from the balcony, request that the mayor rejected, reported Friday the newspaper 'Segre'.
"For me there is no controversy, in the meetings we had with FanClub, Mossos d'Esquadra, Local Police and Firemen, this issue came up, they asked me to remove that banner and I told them that it could not be withdrawn", Royes declared to Europa Press.
"It is a banner that is there because there is a full agreement to give support to the political prisoners," said Marquez, "they said they would not leave, just as they have to respect our decision, we respect theirs," he said. aggregate.
This is the second year that this situation occurs and, according to Royes, "Marc will go out to the square, greet the fans and take photos with them as he did last year".
