“If Chile pays for them to do a circus, it’s their problem”: Ecuador’s response to the Byron Castillo case

Eduardo Carlezzo, lawyer for the National Association of Professional Football (ANFP) of Chile, presented what would be new evidence of a bad registration of Byron Castillo, who would have been born in Colombia and not in Ecuador, with which the Tricolor team could be disqualified of the World Cup.

In Ecuador, the news has not had a special impact on the Ecuadorian Football Federation (FEF), where they indicate that “It has only come out from the Chilean media”. The answer was given by Carlos Manzur, vice president of the most important soccer organization in Ecuador.

“Each lawyer has his methods, spaces, we respect this. But the truth is that the only thing that matters is what is in the process, the rest is a circus. If Chile pays someone to do a circus, it’s their problem.”.

“There is nothing official so far. That supposed date of the FIFA resolution is a strategy of the lawyer that Chileans have and that the media, including Ecuadorians, replicate “Manzur added in an interview with the Ecuadorian media outlet ‘El Deportivo’.

Carlezzo announced that in a case FIFA does not disqualify Ecuador, they will present the case before the TAS. In Ecuador they know that this will happen: “No matter what happens, this issue is not going to end now, because we know that this is going to end up in the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS)”Manzur said.
