The past Sunday, the Real Madrid topped like champion of the Supercopa of Spain after defeating to the Athletic of Madrid in the batch of penaltis. The party, however, could have a very distinct end if Fede Valverde, mediocentro of the group of Zinedine Zidane, had not demolished to Álvaro Morata with a hard entrance by behind when the forward colchonero remained only in front of Thibaut Courtois.

The Uruguayan propinó a hard patada to the athletic forward and was expelled to the moment by the referee but, of this form, attained to avoid a very clear occasion of the attacker white that had supposed the goal of the victory for the ones of Diego Pablo Simeone. After the expulsion, the party died with the initial tie and in the penaltis imposed the Real Madrid.

In a back press conference, Valverde commented the action and recognised that it did not have a sportive gesture. "It is not an action of which was proud, neither much less. I know that it is antideportivo and that is not well but did not remain me another", ensured the Uruguayan, that was appointed like MVP of the final.

Valverde Ensured that, after the party, went him to ask pardon to Morata, that remained lesionado after the hard action of the madridista. "All the mates supported me in the moment of the expulsion and gave me spirits. Already after the party was to apologise him to Morata and Simeone also said me some words that, obviously, appreciate them", explained.

On this, it is necessary to remember the words of the 'Cholo', that ensured that "the prize to the best player of the tournament also has a point in this played. Valverde Won the final". It is not for less, since the dirty action of the madridista allowed to his team arrive with life to the batch of penaltis, in which the Athletic failed the two first launchings -executed by Saúl Ñíguez and Thomas Partey- and remained sold.

Zidane also commented the action of Valverde

Zinedine Zidane recognised the hard action of his pupilo in the final of the Supercopa,​ but recognised that it did what owed. "It has done what had to do, has been an earthy fault, but has done it well. And at the end the important is that it has excused with Álvaro", commented, adding that "it has carried the MVP and gladden me by him, because it has done a big work. Sure that it wants to share it with his mates".
