‘I leave with a sense of injustice’

Alberto Toril has thanked Real Madrid for his six seasons as Castilla Coach, but says that he leaves ‘with the sense of injustice’.

With the B team struggling at the foot of the Segunda Division this term, Madrid dispensed with the 40-year-old this week to end almost two years in the position and five-and-a-half years association at a technical level with the club.

For Toril, the decision came too soon and without enough of a chance afforded to him to turn things around.

“First, I want to thank you as you always be my home and to Real Madrid, for allowing me to develop as a Coach in the academy, like they once gave me the chance to start as a player,” began the former midfielder in an open letter released today.

“This will always be my home, I went once and came back to be Coach and spent six wonderful seasons full of success, so I hope and desire and more so I am convinced that I will return with more strength and experience, and this will be soon.

“I leave with my head high, having given everything, devoted body and soul to this club, but with a sense of injustice. I have always thought of the club before my own personal ambition, but this time the club has not thought of me.

“It was the first difficulty in these six seasons and I thought that our experience would be worth more confidence and trust on their part. I could not do things as I would have liked and I know that the responsibility for the team’s situation is not only mine.”
