One of the great problems that the Spanish soccer team is the deep disaffection that generates in the public. It is not a team that hopes, despite the fact that it has players of a high level. An idol or at least one ‘top’ class player is missing, as it did in previous competitions.
The attitude of the footballers themselves does not help this situation. If phrases like those of Alvaro Morata, who said that “giving an opinion is easy and free” thus questioning the whistles they dedicate to it, they already make it clear that they do not accept criticism, not having a simple gesture of affection with the fans, he is not moving towards greater communion either.
The best example was left at the exit of the hotel in Seville in the direction of the Cartuja. Dozens of fans (the anti-Covid security measures, for another day) they crowded to fire the players and they passed them. Literally. Only one player greeted, with some reluctance, while children and adults yelled with encouragement for them to beat Poland. Something they didn’t do.
In social networks many have expressed their discontent:
Not even the fans most used to succeeding with the national team, such as captains Busquets or Alba, made a gesture of saying hello.
