Athletic: And suddenly, a drone in San Mamés

In minute 68 of the match I had to stop it, as a result of a drone falling onto the pitch, not impacting on any person. Once it was withdrawn, to the field delegate, the game resumed without any further incident ”.

The record of Pizarro Gómez reflects an unusual event that happened yesterday during the match played in San Mamés between Athletic and Eibar. The referee of the Madrid Committee specifies this incident without going into more details. A set that did not prevent the derby between lions and gunsmiths from continuing to pass with absolute normality.

The drone in question, according to the images, was accompanied by a kind of flag that, apparently, contained a message against the celebration of the Eurocup in San Mamés. The fact, logically, has led to the presentation of the relevant complaint to the police.

The event appreciated at grass level went more unnoticed by viewers, since the announcers on duty preferred to ignore the corresponding sequence so as not to publicize the authors of the same. The face of surprise and disbelief of some players from both teams and even that of the referee himself clearly reflect the abnormality of this fact. Until now, unless it was publicly disclosed, there had been no news or images of anything similar in other stadiums.

-The anger of the coaches-

Marcelino and Mendilibar, according to what was seen yesterday in the run-up to the match in San Mamés, maintain a cordial relationship. Both coaches have been in football for a long time. The two, on the other hand, were players rather than coaches.

Mendilibar’s anger after Yuri’s goal, a lion with a past at Eibar, did not go unnoticed. The visiting coach regretted the oversight at the time of marking Bryan Gil, the first player in history who, defending the armory club’s shirt, has received a call from a Spanish coach. The goal from Bilbao came down the left wing after a throw-in started from the right.

Marcelino, for his part, also had his moments on the Athletic bench. The rojiblanco coach, seeing what he saw, had a hard time believing certain things he was seeing on his team.
