Aitor Elizegi, president of Athletic, spoke shortly before the start of the league clash against Atlético de Madrid on issues such as the Euroleague, the Super Cup and the two lost finals for his team in the Cup. The head of state has made these statements during the previous duel of San Mamés on the microphones of Movistar LaLiga.
On the subject of the transfer of the Spanish headquarters of the Eurocup to Seville, Elizegi has indicated that “these are news that are difficult to advance in the season, they make it more dense. Bilbao had worked hard and the team and everything that Ibaigane stands for had worked hard so that this venue was prepared for the most demanding matches. I think it is, but eIt is obvious that the pandemic is creating very complex social health situations that must be respected”.
The Athletic president also referred to the question of the Super league: “I think good words have come out this week. Situations must be put at risk to talk about solidarity, fans, sports with values, lifelong teams to value how we have all come together. To get out of this crisis we should find the vaccine among all, not only that some find it and not others. I think that future European football should be written between who we have been, who we are and who will be ”.
Regarding Cup finals, Elizegi He acknowledged the accumulated wear and tear, but made it clear that “this is Athletic. Five kids who played in Segunda B last year and today face the leader. Yes, this is Athletic ”.
