From the environment of the lions there is a clear position regarding the sanction of the rojillos
Ernesto valverde nothing will be kept regarding the fight that Osasuna maintains with UEFA and has chosen to move Athletic away from it. And it is that recently, there have been certain comments regarding this situation, which imply attacks from the fans of the El Sadar club to the rojiblancos for alleged implications.
“Claiming that we are involved is false and aims to influence followers”. This is what Valverde has said forcefully about the ‘Osasuna case’. It has been quite clear that there should be no doubt in the position that the San Mamés team has in this regard and they will defend their integrity at all costs.
Ernesto Valverde continues to make his position clear on the Osasuna case
In this way, the ‘Txingurri’ will exclude Athletic from the rojillos’ fight in the sanction imposed by UEFA. There is still no resolution on the case, but whatever happens, the coach wants to follow a line of respect towards the El Sadar club as well as his coach. “He finished in seventh place and deserves to play”, is the sentence of the coach.
In that order of ideas, what Valverde wants to do in the Osasuna case is nothing more than to make clear the position that he and all the lions have regarding what happened and could happen later. “To suggest that we have something to do with Osasuna is completely false. and he only tries to predispose the Osasuna fans against Athletic”. It’s what he said.
Valverde does not want to leave doubts about the position of the lions
Jon Uriarte has been quite clear that the planning of the squad could vary if they play in Europe. Of course, for the San Mamés coach it is clear that for now the focus is totally focused on two competitions: LaLiga Santander and the Copa del Rey. The coach’s words are contrary to those of the president, although both have always shown respect for the club led by Jagoba Arrasate.
We will have to wait then for what can happen with this movement. At the moment, the expectation remains quite high, since UEFA will have to decide sooner rather than later if Osasuna will play the Conference League or not. For now, the line of conduct of the lions will remain the same and they prefer not to enter into that alien fight.
