Pellegrini believes ‘irresponsible to demand that it be played’ in Huesca

Manuel Pellegrini has shown this Sunday supporter “without a doubt” of postpone the game that SD Huesca will face Real Betis on Monday at the El Alcoraz stadium (9pm, Goal), on which LaLiga has not yet ruled. The Chilean coach believes that they run excessive risks for the dispute thereof.


The Verdiblanca expedition is in principle called at six in the afternoon at the Benito Villamarín stadium to go to the San Pablo airport, fly in charter towards Zaragoza and then go on bus 75 kilometers to Huesca, although the Zaragoza airport was closed for several hours on Saturday afternoon / night due to snow and diverted flights to Barcelona, ​​and in the highway between Zaragoza and Huesca on ice made traffic difficult, with at least one passenger bus overturned. The Alcoraz is today Sunday all covered with snow and for Monday they are expected intense frosts and a thick fog at game time, with temperatures that can reach up to -7º in Huesca capital.

“Without a doubt that I am in favor of the postponement of the party, it seems to me very risky in the way you are going to travel and also the state of the field, which is going to be completely snowy for tomorrow to have a normal soccer game. It seems pretty to me irresponsible to demand to play a game in which none of the conditions are present, neither the atmospheric nor those of the field to be able to play normally, so we are going to wait for what will happen. At the moment we have to be available to the decision of LaLiga ”, said this Sunday at noon Pellegrini at a press conference, consulted about the travel plan and the possibility of the game being postponed.


“We scheduled the trip to fly to Zaragoza at six in the afternoon, to take a bus from there, although it seems risky, to Huesca. That is the initial program, I do not know if it will have modifications in the next few hours, ”Pellegrini continued.

It is possible that Betis suspend your displacement this Sunday and postpone it to Monday in the morning or that it is canceled due to the postponement of the match in Huesca, which must be decided by LaLiga, together with the RFEF, in the next few hours.
