Fernando Morientes has reacted to comments made by the player’s agent Jonathan Barnett, who yesterday said club fans had been « foul » with the Welshman.
Two former historic Real Madrid players, Morientes and Hierro, took part this Thursday in an event organized by LaLiga at the Palacio de Cristal, a football-tennis match in which they faced two legends of the little yellow ball, Alex Corretja and Alberto Berasategui. After demonstrating their skills, they spoke to the media.
While Fernando Hierro spoke at length about the recent explosion of Vinicius, Hierro made a point of responding to Barnett, Gareth Bale’s agent. « If he says it is because he thinks it, I think the opposite. I think Real Madrid have behaved really well with him. They do not owe him any monthly payments so far, he has played matches, when he was injured he was treated … Real Madrid always treat all players well and I say this from experience, « said Morientes, ultimately referring to the club, and not to supporters like Jonathan Barnett .
The Spaniard also spoke about the qualification of Casa Blanca for the knockout stages of the Champions League: « You are still suffering, as it should be. In this competition, if you don’t suffer, it’s either that you do. something wrong, or you really do things very, very well. Sometimes you face opponents who are theoretically inferior, but nowadays any game can be complicated. It’s true that Real Madrid is solid, also in La Liga, and happens to be in a positive dynamic. The fans can be happy « .
Finally, Morientes insisted on the current good performance of Ancelotti’s men. « In November, a month often complicated in recent years in terms of results and ranking, this time they are very solid. It is true that the seasons are played from February to April, when you have to put the package, see the management of the coach, locker room, injuries and state of form. But to date, Real are leaders in La Liga and also in the Champions League « .
