“The important thing is that everything has been a small scare and that’s it. I can’t get involved in the sanction, the only one I had to apologize to was Portu and I already spoke with him and I’m calm now,” added the defender. , who could not think about the sanction because the duel against Naples was “more important than all this” and who warned that he knows that “the impact that this club has makes everything that happens much bigger.”
