Clemente renounces Athletic’s invitation to attend the Cup final “because our fans are not going”

Javier Clemente, in his last stage as a coach in the League.

The directive of the Athletic club has invited Javier Clemente at the end of the Copa del Rey at the Estadio de la Cartuja, but it has rejected this invitation, showing solidarity with the Bilbao fans who will not be able to be in the game.

Athletic has invited me, but I will not go, first because our fans do not go and they have recommended us not to go because of the pandemic. I have to thank Elizegi. I think I shouldn’t go first because I’m the Basque Country coach and second because we can’t go out. If our fans don’t go, neither do I. I also think that I should not go on the Athletic expedition, although I am grateful that for the first time they have invited me to something ”, explained the coach of the Euskadi team.

The Copa del Rey final between Athletic Club and Real Sociedad, to be held in Seville, will be held without an audience in the stands, after the RFEF silence rumors that there would be fans through a press release. “The current epidemic situation and the established measures that entail the perimeter closure of mobility, both for the autonomous community of Andalusia and the province of Seville, make unfeasible for fans not residing in the province to attend this meeting”.
