Angel Torres, President of Getafe, has asked through the program Time of Game, of the Cope chain, the postponement “24 or 48 hours” of the match that the azulón team must play this Monday against the Elche at the Martínez Valero (19:00). The clash, initially scheduled for this Sunday, was postponed by the Federation on Saturday due to Getafe’s difficulties in traveling to Elche.
Torres has put forward as reasons that “today we will go to sleep without knowing if tomorrow we can travel and when we can nor if, in the case of being able to do so, we will arrive at the time of the game. They tell us that from eleven o’clock tonight they will study whether Barajas reopen tomorrow, but with the temperatures that they say there will be, it seems unlikely. The trains don’t work. There is Getafe players who cannot leave home because of the accumulated snow … What is the problem in postponing the game for 24 or 48 hours and playing it on Tuesday or Wednesday?
“U.S we haven’t trained for three days”Torres has continued. “And not because we don’t want to, but because you can’t enter the Coliseum. Insisting that you have to play the games is piss off everyone unnecessarily. We boast of being the best league in the world but as soon as there is a problem everything is delayed. It’s all simpler, it’s a matter of common sense and responsibility“, it is finished.
