The journalist Juan Antonio Alcalá, of Chain COPE, advanced that the RFEF had refused the investment of headquarters for the parties between Barcelona and Real Madrid. And from the last hours, before even that it did official the decision of the Committee, distinct half had informed already on this. Competition proposes the date of 18 December for the Classical, although Javier Thebes denied this date in his last intervention in front of the means.
The president of the patronal of LaLiga defended that this day "play split of Glass of Rey", although neither FC Barcelona neither Real Madrid have programmed parties of the tournament of the KO for this date. It opens the frame, like this then , of a new dispute between Thebes and Luis Rubiales, the maximum mandator of the RFEF, to fix the new date of the Barça-Madrid.
