This Saturday there was an almost unprecedented episode in the football environment when the Real Madrid player, Fede Valverdegave a blow to the face of his similar from Villarreal, Alex Baena.
The incident occurred in the parking lot of the Santiago Bernabeu after those led by Carlo Ancelotti fell 2-3 against the Yellow Submarine.
After learning different versions of what happened, as well as Baena’s reaction through social networks, the Spanish program El Chiringuito de Jugones broadcast a video in which the attacker can be seen with the swollen cheekbone before getting on the bus.
Marca has published the version of Federico Valverde, known through the Uruguayan player’s environment.
It is said that the root of the problem dates back to January 19 when Madrid and Villarreal met in the Copa del Rey. There, Baena would have told Valverde: ‘cry now that your son is not going to be born’.
Immediately afterwards, the source explained: “But today (yesterday) he told him something similar and Fede got hot. For this reason, he waited for him in the parking lot… and told him that ‘he didn’t mess with the family’.
On the other hand, Baena remains firm by pointing out on his social networks “IT IS TOTALLY FALSE THAT I SAID THAT.”
At the moment La Liga has not commented on the events or the possibility that Valverde faces a sanction given that everything happened on the outskirts of the Santiago Bernabéu. However, the media reported that Villarreal has graphic material of the attack, which they handed over to the National Police, which reveals that the Uruguayan could have legal problems.
