The action led to several white fans thanking the Barça midfielder on social networks for having allowed Real Madrid to go to the Champions League, comments that Aitana herself wanted to cut through through her Twitter account with this forceful statement:

“I have not saved anyone. I just wanted my team to WIN and make the RECORD”, she has written under the video of the play. And she has continued: “The perfect League: 30 out of 30. It was the only important thing today, as well as firing a colleague and reference, Mel. My responsibility is to defend the shield that I bring and give everything until the last second of each match. We are a competitive team and these are our values”. And he ends up asking for support for the Turin final: “Thanks for the support, fans! We will need you in Turin. Let’s go for more”.
