The president of Deportivo, Fernando Vidal, has recognized that the A Coruña club is one of the great losers of having to play without an audience, but has warned that it will not request permission so that there may be fans in Riazor because, in his opinion, you cannot “lose perspective” of how the COVID-19.
“Starting from the premise that Deportivo is one of the big losers for playing games behind closed doors, we can’t lose perspective, nor the memory of what has happened all these months in which we have suffered the scourge of a deadly pandemic that has turned the foundations of our society upside down, “he said.
In statements provided by Deportivo, he maintained that it is “a health issue, public health, and health is above all”.
“That is why we are not going to request anything, from any institution. We will always be at the expense of the measures and orders indicated by the highest health authorities and what, from those measures, will lead to soccer and soccer events,” he said.
Vidal insisted that he is “on the path to momentarily overcome this pandemic” and considered that “now more than ever the criteria of health experts and scientists must prevail” over the “wishes” of the club to see “an Abanca-Riazor full”.
