After Celta’s victory over Levante in the Ciutat de València, footballer Iago Aspas has been singled out by allegedly directing racist comments to a player of the Valencian team during today’s match. The striker has responded to these severe accusations via the team’s means.
“What is said on the pitch, stays on the pitch. That’s why I’m not going to reproduce what he told me. In any case, I did not call him what he attributed to me, “says Iago Aspas.
Celta wishes to emphasize its strong defense of fair play and respect among rivals, both inside and outside the field, values that are hallmarks of the club and that everyday are put into practice by each and every sky-blue team, from the youngest to the senior squad.
