A weakened Real Madrid to play in San Mamés



The disastrous composition of the international football calendar, replete with dates for national teams, leagues, European cups, national cups, super cups and other tournaments to win money, has been made evident in the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey, which are played the next week. Real Madrid will be measured Athletic in San Mamés, who have just eliminated Barcelona, ​​and will not be able to count on their internationals Militao, Casemiro, Vinicius, Rodrygo and Valverde, summoned by the Brazilian and Uruguayan teams, who have matches in the tour of national teams that opens on Monday and will last ten days. Betis also suffers this injustice, with four players called up by the South American teams.

Real Madrid has been trying for days to get a postponement of their quarterfinal duel, if they qualified against Elche, as it happened, but the Spanish Football Federation has not been able to achieve it because there are no dates.

Real Madrid has negotiated with the FEF, without success, and in principle neither does the Brazilian Federation, whose team has nothing at stake, give in to release its four players; It is an unfair situation that violates the equality of the competition and that Betis also suffers

“I understand the complaints,” he said. Luis Rubiales, president of the FEF. “This calendar was not negotiated. The matter was raised to the CSD and they made the decision. We tried to negotiate by highlighting situations like this, but there was no possibility. We abide by it. Hopefully in another season we can sit down and these types of moments can be solved, “said the federative leader.

the white club has also dialogued with the Brazilian Federation to release to his four internationals, because Brazil is not playing for anything, but they have not achieved it so far either.

In this way, and except for a change of position by Brazil and Uruguay, Real Madrid will go to San Mamés without four starters: Militao, Casemiro, Vinicius and Rodrygo. And without Valverde, who is a starter in the Cup and one of the first relays that Ancelotti executes. Is a very unfair, unusual situation, which violates the equality of the competition.
