CSD Colo Colo rejects Libertadores final in Madrid: "They have taken the only pride we have left"

The Social and Sports Club Colo Colothrough its elected president Edmundo Valladaresrefused implementation Copa Libertadores de América 2018 final in Madrid (Spain), between River Plate and Boca Juniors of Argentina.

Cacique's future co-driver has questioned this fact with the column "The Conquerors of America Cup and the Elites of Soccer", which refers to the Conmebol decision.

"The last couple of days have been controversial in South American football with regard to the failed Copa Libertadores de Améric final." Soccer and even non-football programs have been filled with incidental images around the Monumental de Río. the subsequent suspension of the game on November 24th. After Boca Juniors refused to play the next day, it seemed as though there was uncertainty between CONMEBOL and the presidents of both clubs when and where the backgammon is played is that it finally comes into play and is not resolved by the secretariat, The long and sad telescope, where the great absent ball and great harm was people, especially the partner and fan of River Plate, who had to go twice to the stadium to find only the sadness of a rectangle of empty green and irregular announcements on the loudspeakers"he said in the first place.

"As a colossol, we will never be indifferent to the future of football on our continent, we remember that his birth, as in the case of the European Champions League, is inspired by the Masters Championship in South America organized by the Club and Deportivo Colo-Colo in 1948. we are not indifferent to our shirt as lovers of this sport in general. We understand South American soccer as the lively expression of our nations, its virtues and its flaws. With its tremendous passion and incomparable with any other place in the world, but also with an overflow of passion that has reached tragic boundaries – replace examples -. And by the way, with his uncertainty in organizing, which tells us a lot about the mediocrity of our ruling classes that today reflect with incomparable clarity in shame that they are unable to organize a football game that even have no guest fans"he adds.

"This uncertainty and overcrowding are not surprising in South America, they are just as old as the Copa Libertadores itself, perhaps because we have become so accustomed to this, we have not been able to imagine what is coming in. The facts were approved to begin finalizing the one side in the CONMEBOL international cup from 2019, mixing even at a time when the city of Miami, but eventually choosing Santiago, a decision that opens a new and valid place for businesses to travel agencies and airlines that are already shaking hands. He should be interested in the possibility of playing outside the region, a chance that has long been around the head of football in South America"he continues.

Finally, he claims that "it is already a cruel irony of fate that the end of the cup, whose name gives tribute to soldiers of independence that have liberated South American countries from Spanish colonization, is played no more than in Madrid, the capital of Spain. But behind this insulting symbolism is the most it is regrettable that finally open the door to the definitions that will be played forever from South America if the final only at a predefined stadium keeps the fans in order to see the finals at their own stadiums – if not only by accident, it was only the final roofing – today performs a show that is our land of other people. They have already brought us to our best players and coaches, copied our tournaments, and now they have the only pride we have left: the beautiful Copa Libertadores de América. And by the way, the overwhelming majority of South American fans are condemned to not being able to see their team that we have been convicted for years so we can not watch it on television unless it's via paid transmissions, This one the end result of Copa Libertadores is ultimately a new step in favor of commercialization and elitisation of football, ignoring the historical and undeniable popular roots of this sport on our continent, and confirming that respect for identity and partners and fans has finally come to lose"
