[VIDEO] Spanish player criticized that the Spanish Super Cup is played in another country: “It makes me sad”

As part of the celebration of the Spanish Super Cup in its 2022 edition, the Spanish Athletic Club de Bilbao player, Raúl García, spoke and rejected that being an original tournament of the hybrid country, it is played in another territory such as Saudi Arabia.

“It’s simple, we are playing a championship that is played in our country and obviously I think that going to another country to play it does not make the sense that we all know it does, there is no more route than that ”, he pointed out.

In that sense, the Spanish striker criticized that football has been taken as a purely business and not as a means of entertainment for people.

“I am one of those before and I admit that for me football has changed in the sense that the fan is no longer thought of. Right now what matters is to generate and try to get sponsorship ”.

In turn, the former Atlético de Madrid and Valencia player hinted that the event organizers have strayed from the real reason for football and it has made it difficult to see even for fans.

“We are forgetting a bit about the basics that football is. It is that atmosphere that makes the games different, that the fans enjoy in a game with the familyThat the schedules are as comfortable as possible for everyone ”, he stressed.

Finally, the player admitted to being ashamed of the way they have changed the sport. “It is not that I say it, it is something that is seen. It is my job, I dedicate myself to doing this but obviously from when I started until now, It has changed a lot in that sense and I feel sorry for it”, He sentenced.

The Spanish Super Cup in its 2022 edition, will begin to be played this Tuesday in Riyadh, capital of Saudi Arabia with the semifinals Barcelona Vs. Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid Vs. Athletic Club starting at 4 pm. (New York time).
