‘Seferovic must ask for forgiveness’

Real Sociedad President Joaquin Aperribay has sided with the fans who decided to whistle Haris Seferovic last night.

The Swiss international received an unwelcome reception from Anoeta when replacing Antoine Griezmann during the second half of La Real’s 0-0 Champions League draw against Manchester United.

Believed to be a response to the player’s choice of putting his finger to his lips in celebration for a goal against Osasuna at the weekend, the fans’ response have been backed by the club’s President.

“Seferovic was not correct in his goal celebration and the public have reacted to him,” Aperribay has commented this week in considering the

“Now it is up to him to ask for forgiveness.”

Whistles were also heard when Ruben Pardo was replaced by Xabi Prieto.

“The fans were very excited about Ruben Pardo and it is normal that his substitution was not liked, although Xabi gives us a lot.

“Our aims in the Champions League now? The reward for finishing third is the Europa League and we must keep in mind that we face two opponents who have given us more of a chance than Manchester United.

“They are a great team, had the chance with the penalty, but we were able to get out in the end alive.”
