Real Madrid’s forceful response to Laporta: “Which is the team of the (Franco) regime? | VIDEO

This Monday, Joan Laporta gave a press conference where he referred to the notorious ‘Negreira Case’. FC Barcelona is accused of obtaining arbitration benefits for paying a total of 7.3 million euros to José María Enríquez Negreira, a former Spanish soccer referee who was vice president of the Technical Committee of Referees (CTA).

In his appearance before the media, the president of the Catalan club did not hesitate to deal a heavy blow to Real Madrid by calling it “the team of the regime”, in a clear allusion to the dictatorship of Francisco Franco (1939-1975).

“There is a club that has gone for free and says that it feels harmed sportingly; the real Madrid. Club that has been favored historically and currently by arbitration decisions, for whatever reasons. A club historically considered the team of the current regime due to its proximity to political, economic and sports power.

These statements did not like anything on the other side of the path. The white team did not take long to respond with a video published on their social networks.

In the film material they review some historical events such as the inauguration of the Camp Nou stadium with the presence of José Solís Ruiz, Minister General of Franco. It also highlights that Barcelona decorated the dictator three times and named him an honorary member in 1965.

In another passage, it is highlighted that Barcelona “was saved by Franco three times from bankruptcy with three requalifications” and managed to win “eight Leagues and nine Generalissimo Cups”; by contrast, it took Real Madrid 15 years to win a national league title again.
