Monaco midfielder Cesc Fabregas has responded to a statement made by Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, which the Belgian made a few days ago.
In his statement, Courtois was saying that it would be unfair to declare Barcelona champions if the championship ended prematurely.
“We were all amazed.”
“Everyone is defending their interests. Monaco have at least missed out on a trip to the Euro Cup. If it is decided to end the Spanish Championship prematurely, just as it happened in France, Barcelona will be a worthy champion.
Tournaments are not performed prematurely because they just want to. But the reason for this is a pandemic that cannot be ignored.
They told us that everything was over. The games would not be held anymore. We were all amazed. We haven’t played for a long time, so there was a big risk of injuries.
I can’t even remember the last time I didn’t train for almost six weeks. Probably when I was 15 years old, “Fabregas told TVE.
The Spanish midfielder defended the honor of Barcelona in 2011/14. Together with the Catalan club, he managed to win La Liga, the Spanish Royal Cup, the European Super Cup, and the World Club Championship once. And, in 2011 and 2013, became the winner of the Spanish Super Cup.
As you already know, the French championship, which was suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic, could not be continued and was declared premature. In the current situation, Monaco took the 9th place in the championship. They lacked 9 points to reach the European tournaments.
