On Friday the 10th of this month, the Prosecutor’s Office filed a complaint against FC Barcelona and its former presidents Sandro Rosell and Josep Maria Bartomeu, for alleged corruption in payments to the former vice president of the Referee Technical Committee (CTA) José María Enríquez Negreira. The complaint, consulted by Europe Pressis also directed against Negreira himself and the former directors of the club Óscar Grau and Albert Soler.
The Prosecutor’s Office accuses them of having allegedly committed the crimes of corruption between individuals in the sports field, unfair administration and documentary falsification. The complaint has been filed in the Investigating Court 1 of Barcelona, which has already received a complaint from the referee Xavier Estrada Fernández against Negreira and his son Javier Enríquez Romero for these events.
However, the Prosecutor’s Office leaves out of its complaint Enríquez Romero, who was the sole administrator of the Negreira Dasnil 95 SL company, because it has not been proven that he “knew and shared his father’s purpose.”
On February 21, The professional clubs of LaLiga, with the exception of FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, expressed their “rejection” for the alleged payments to Negreirawhile LaLiga warned that it would act “firmly”.
Rayo Vallecano coach revealed why Falcao is not a starter: “his competitiveness”
There is little left of the Radamel Falcao García who dazzled with Rayo Vallecano, and it is not due to a lack of goal-scoring nose, but rather opportunities from his coach, Andoni Iraola. Although it gave him confidence in the first season, the same has not happened with the second, which will conclude next June.
El Tigre, as the coffee attacker is known, scored goals recently signed for the Vallecas team, he even scored against FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, something no less, but he lost regularity due to his injuries, which led him to decline in Galatasaray. However, once recovered, he has received few playing minutes since his return to the field, which is disappointing for a striker.
In the 2022/23 season, Falcao accumulates only four starts as a starter, in contrast to 17 as a substitute, which is why he has only scored two goals. It is true, the samarium attacker is not the same as before; At 37 years of age, he does not have the same physical condition and speed, for example, but the coach could give him more regularity.
In this context, on Friday March 10, one day before the visit to Celta de Vigo, Andoni Iraola explained why he did not give Falcao ownership again at the Madrid working-class club.
“The Falcao thing is a matter of pure and hard competition and decisions that I have to make. We have alternatives in that offensive zone and in each game I try to make the right choices to start and end. From the beginning, he has competed every training session and every minute, and he will continue to do so,” said Iraola, who gave Tigre his full support when he recently signed for the team, although over time he took it upon himself to withdraw it.
