The midfield player manchego is a player idolised in all the Spanish football after the famous goal that marked in the World-wide of 2010 and that gave him the title to the selection trained by Vicente of the Forest. But in Saint Mamés him pitan. Why?
Cost to think that to a player like Andrés Iniesta, exemplary and professional, him pite in some rival stadium. Understanding that to the rivals always tries them put pressure, the manchego receives whistles whenever it visits Saint Mamés. The reason, quite difficult to understand. A supposed simulation of Iniesta caused the expulsion of the local player Fernando Amorebieta in the party of league of 2010.
The parish bilbaína does not forgive that. They think that Iniesta threw , exaggerated an action in front of which the referee Mateu Lahoz finish hammering. And the images that the fans could see by television did not leave place to doubts. A stadium historically señorial is able of pitar to a footballer that has a path impoluta and that carries a lot of years giving clínics every time that plays.
But this action does not forget and always will receive such hostility, something that for example Xavi never suffered –for comparing similar players and of the Barcelona-. A phobia that, everything it is necessary to say him, is not generalised. As it said Clemente in his day, "can pitar 2.000 and already seems mucah people".
Any statement against
Iniesta never has wanted to throw more firewood to the fire. Never it has had words against of the fans of the Athletic. On the contrary, always it has stood out his passion in the terracing and his degree of knowledge of the sport. The current Barcelona captain always is very wary in his statements.
"For me, Saint Mamés is a stadium more. It is more for the fans of the Athletic. For me it is the same a field that another. For me it is the same play in Bilbao that in the field of the Athletic of Madrid", said in his moment the '8'. We will see what occurs this Saturday, but surely the environment will be equal of hostile that of habit.
