Real Madrid star hits back at press coverage – ‘I’m not a criminal’

Real Madrid defender Nacho Fernandez says he has had a tough time after the reaction to his horror challenge on Girona forward Portu last Saturday.

Nacho, 33, was widely condemned for his ‘tackle’ on Portu, which saw him stretchered off and leave the stadium in an ambulance. Portu is set to miss several weeks of action, as is Nacho, who was handed a three-game ban for his red card.

Girona fans at Montilivi responded with chants ‘assassin’ at the time, while many media outlets called the challenge ‘criminal’.

“I do not consider myself a criminal or an assassin, I consider myself a great professional. The only person I had to apologise to was Portu, and now I’m calm.”

“The sanction came out today, we had the game which is much more important than all this, we didn’t have time to talk about it. But they have been difficult days for me. Everything in this club becomes bigger than what it seems. I value the fact that I have been able to speak with Portu and that he is fine.”

Nacho is set to miss clashes against Osasuna, Sevilla and El Clasico against Barcelona.

“It makes me angry, the first one who is sad is me,” Nacho explained to Relevo.

“I have to comply with the sanction, I don’t know if the club will appeal, but three games out is not going to make Real Madrid collapse.”

As tends to be the case with Real Madrid and Barcelona, the media reponse tends to be hyperbolic, but few will sympathise with Nacho. The match was cruising to an end, with Real Madrid winning comfortably, when he made the tackle. It was fortunate that Portu was in the air and did not have his leg planted.

  1. Girona fans call him a criminal?
    Same human waste product that chanted monkey noises to Vini?

    Nacho, dont even acknowledge mentally ill people, just ridicule them, that infuriates them even more.

    1. To M.C.

      It’s you who’s mentally ill if you think monkey chants at the same level at breaking someone’s leg. Shut down your internet and seek help.

      1. Now of course he didn’t break anyones leg so I believe you must be one of those people who argue with their own realities in order to make a point.

        Its very amusing to watch M.C. live inside your head, as it’s pretty apparent that one and same person is writing these comments under different names.

      2. 😄”break his leg” bless your soul.

        What else did he do in your confused world? Did he ran over his cat and steal his lunch money?

        A bit ironic to call out someone on mentall ilness when you display schizophrenic tendencies friendo. Maybe you should take your own advice!😄

        1. are you sure he didnt paralyze him as well and leave him in a wheelchair? is he still alive? did not he throw a hand granande at him while being stretched off.

          barcelona fans are the diapers of footballing world, i swear. the amount of insanity going around the fanbase is unprecedented.

  2. Jose, if you also think the same person is writing these comments under different names, then you must be living in the same mental institution as this mental case called M.C.

    1. “Mo Salah”

      Yeah, I recognize the name, I’ve followed this site for years and I remember your former exchanges with M.C.

      Half of my amusement from being on this site comes from seeing how he provokes you over Barcelonas situation.

      All I’m saying is the damage he does to you is impressive. You seem infuriated.

      1. You’re easily fooled. I can care less about Barcelona or MC. They can relegate barca to Segunda for all I care. After all, I heard segunda refs are cheaper to buy, so they shouldn’t have a problem coming back up to the first division. And MC can go on taking people like you for a fool.

        Keep something in mind though. As soon as you write something he doesn’t agree with, he’ll count you as the same imaginary person as the rest of those who he doesn’t agree with.

        1. Save the stories for those who get paid by hour to listen to you on next session.

          As a Real fan I couldn’t be more amused to see you suffer.

          Have a good one!

          1. Is this really the standard of typical El Real fans? Seems pathetic for me. No sportivity, nor actual banters, but someone who probably don’t even know nitty picky about sports nor watch the match.

            “As a Real fan I couldn’t be more amused to see you suffer.” : What a pathetic statement as a football fan, even lower than bribery case itself

          2. Imagine someone actually paying attention to you and bantering with you, “mo salah” under other name.

            As in real life, likes of you deserve as much attention as something freshly dropped by a dog on a sidewalk.

            I already mentioned, take it with someone who gets paid to listen to you.

          3. Yeah yeah yeah, whatever you say jose. d. Are El Real fans standard so low that they can’t even differentiate the style of wording between different guy?

          4. When your club is at least NEAR us in terms of achievements, glory, cups, we can banter.

            Regardless of what club you support.

            Untill then, there isn’t much to talk about and untill then, you will be the laughing stock and punching bag of this site. Which also amuses me 😀

          5. Oooh, “punching bag”. Are you talking about football or you want to talk about MMA? Pick a lane dude. And “in this site”? Dude, are you okay? This is just a website, not face to face. Have a real life dude

        2. Ahaha so this is the social reject above with schzo-delusions about broken leg challenges and account-a-plenty?
          What on earth would anyone possibly have to banter about with an schizophreniac who doesn’t understand what a metaphore is?
          Ye, go on and tell us all about your life of emotional trauma caused by Real and its fans on a daily basis. We care, I promise.
          Please. You don’t play with turds, you flush them.

          1. Yes, we flush the turds. The problem is, those turds are those El Real fans here that do not use their brain before commenting. If you say “dont even acknowledge mentally ill people” is acceptable, maybe you should book a ticket to the nearest doctor

          2. AHAHA he is actually sitting here and updating, praying for a response.
            Tell us more about your life as a social reject and shizodelusional freak.

            Im somehow getting the idea that comment was aimed at you. You will figure it out, eventually.

  3. Nah dude, it’s another person. But seriously? One, is your brain ok? Two, you’re actually waiting for response? That means you also a social reject and freak if I use the same logic on you? Lovely, do again. Go on, let’s see what kind of imaginary thing that you’re going to spew out next

  4. It’s not unusual to visit this page once or twice a day and read the articles for 10-15 mins like I’m doing now.
    However, when someone clearly socially awkward as yourself posts literally 2 minutes later (there are timestamps) after hanging in the thread pretty much entire day, you got to wonder about your mental well being. And since you post nonsense under different name as “breaking someone elses leg” I have to ask – how bad is Real Madrid FC and people that have been making fun of you entire day REALLY hurting you?

    What else is happening in your schizophrenic world? Is your club above Real Madrid in prestige and merits?

    1. Again, dumb people like you can’t even tell the difference in wording style. Clearly, the wording style is different. And yet, you’re really using this “It’s not unusual to visit this page once or twice a day and read the articles for 10-15 mins like I’m doing now” argument to justify that you’re actually waiting for response, which does not make any sense. Clearly again, you’re also waiting for the response. So, feeling like you’re licking your own spitting?

      1. Obviously, when you’re talking to someone and initiate a conversation, you will respond, as we are talking now. I barely had finished the article before you responded. Pathetic, aren’t you?
        Lets see, I posted 2:28, you replied 2:30. Never mind the sitting here whole day. That is a sign of mental illness. You live off welfare, don’t you?

        There is no difference in wording style, more like attempt to deflect the attention from your mental health problems and social awkwardness, namely sitting on football forums whole day and being laughed at, desperate for attention. Buddy, noone is laughing with you, people are laughing at you.

        You really are a mental case aren’t you? Tell me how much it hurts again that Real Madrid FC and it’s fans are jamming inferiority complexes in your head?

        1. Yeah yeah yeah, your imagination really on the top level. Buddy, I really feel you. Seems that you’re really struggle with your own mental issue that you start branding everyone else as having the same problem as you. Seek professional help buddy, I mean it. Trust me, one day you will be functional again within society

          1. This thread…
            🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 He must have sat and refreshed his browser the whole day.
            Haven’t seen something this miserable and pitiful in a while.

          2. Wow, a big club with small club mentality fans. How’s your scar? Want us to beat your cherished club again?

  5. Jajaja it is the same guy, this time pretending to be Atleti fan… doesn’t understand how site works

    believeing his first comment wasn’t going to be published, making three more…

    100% proof that its same pitiful creature doing this

    jajajajajajajaja waste of air ajajajaj

  6. Jesus, this is what negative IQ looks like. What an id. iot. 😆🫵
