Óscar Puente, mayor of Valladolid, asked athletic fans to celebrate “with sanity and measure” the league title that his team would achieve with a victory at José Zorrilla or, failing that, if they obtain the same result as Real Madrid, in their fiefdom, against Villarreal.
Puente also expressed his willingness to collaborate with the Government Delegation on security matters, after the convocation of a demonstration in the Plaza Mayor of the Valladolid capital announced by the Athletic Front, hours before the game.
“Rojiblanca invasion” is the motto of this call that the Athletic Front has spread during the last hours through social networks with the hastag #ApucelaOe.
“It is not the responsibility of the City Council but of the Government Delegation the authorization of a demonstrationn. We cannot limit or restrict the right of assembly. We only ask for prudence to respect the rules required by the pandemic, “explained Puente after opening an exhibition in the capital of Valladolid.
“The forces of public order,” he continued, “will act to ensure compliance with the health standards that oblige us all.” Valladolid “is a hospitable city” and that receives visitors “with open arms,” he stressed.
