“The repudiation of the decision made by the youthful Gerónimo Spina, his representation and environment, as well as the actions of Club Atlético de Madrid is absolute.”, he added.
Under the title “Outburst and ingratitude”, the Argentine club states that “the youthful Gerónimo Spina leaves the club uprooted, carried away, but above all things, with a manifest ingratitude to everything provided by the Institution throughout its formation, and that is what hurts the most”.
“Greed, the short-term outlook, the easy and petty business, were stronger than the possibility of growing up in a place that contained and trained him throughout his youth stage,” he remarked.
“Advised by his environment and representation, but fundamentally by his own will, the youth made the decision to go hidden and without permission through the back door of the Club Estudiantes de La Plata”, the Argentine entity abounded.

The Spina case is NOT the exception”, the statement continues, in which it ensures that “Estudiantes de La Plata offers itself completely in the training of its youth, not only from a sports point of view but also from a human point of viewinvesting in training, food and education”.

The greedy opportunism to leave without any permission from the place that formed it, and taking advantage of the legal vacuum, does not at all reflect the values that the Club Estudiantes de La Plata proclaims ”, he stressed.
“There are plenty of good examples of those players who dignify the history of our club. The sense of belonging is the trademark that distinguishes us. Countless footballers trained at the institution, many who have triumphed in the world’s main leagues, do nothing more than be available to the club for whatever is needed, and that is ultimately what embraces us and makes us reconfirm the path we have chosen. over the years,” he added.
“We trust our trainers and our athletes, understanding that what happened with the youthful Spina is nothing more than a bad example and the exception to the extensive and rich history of the Club Estudiantes de La Plata”, he concluded.
