Royal Spanish Soccer FederationTORubiales: “It is tremendous that every minute an ambulance passes by the house”
LtoCOVID-19 crisis has put on guard all levels of Spanish sport.The RFEF is not on the sidelines. Luis Rubiales, president of the Spanish Soccer Federation, participated on Monday night from his home in the Bilbosport program on Telebilbao and expressed his concern at the current moment. “Every minute an ambulance goes through the door of the house and that is tremendous.Let’s see if little by little the ICUs are emptied and we return to normal little by little, but not for football, but for seeing each other again, hugging each other,regain friendships. We are convinced that together we will achieve it. Since the RFEF, the first thing we have done has been to put ourselves at the disposal of the Health, giving physiotherapists and psychologists, we have given the hotel of the Federation … “, he explained.
Rubiales insisted that the Federation cannot abstract from the circumstances that plague the entire territory because“We cannot turn our backs on a country with field hospitals or with the problems that exist in the geritricos. We must cooperate and be outstanding.”The leader understands that in this situation the competition is secondary. “What we are experiencing has to make us rethink where the priorities are. Health is above all andwe do not want to set dates to finish the competitions at all costs until the conditions are metfor this, “he highlighted.
Coordinated with the LFP to deal with the future of the League, in the hands of the RFEF is the future of the Cup final that Athletic and Real Sociedad should face in La Cartuja.“We will not make a decision without listening to Elizegi and Aperribay or to the presidents of the territorial federations of Vizcaya and Guipzcoa.We will do it with the utmost rigor and love possible. I have highly respected all the clubs that have participated in the Cup. For me it was the most beautiful competition that we remember, with humble fields full and with emotion until the last minutes. In this case we have a final with two clubs that have gone years without winning the title and have two tremendous hobbies. If everything goes well, we want the final to take place with both hobbies. That there is a landing of Basques in Seville will be wonderful, “he argued.
Rubiales insisted that his ideal plan is to fill La Cartuja: “The priority is for it to be a final with fans. Only if there was a sad situation of greater cause would we talk about playing behind closed doors, but we are not contemplating it now.It will be a very emotional day in which we will all have a special sensitivity because the Cup final is the most beautiful game in our country. After everything that is happening that day we will remember those who will no longer be with us and the restrooms who are doing so much for our society. “
