eight moments in Donostia

May 28, 2013

During the moments before the game against Real Sociedad, we had Cris and Pepe having fun on the bench, and Álvaro Arbeloa, Raúl Albiol and Aitor Karanka laughing it up in the tunnel.

Look at them – ignoring each other for their phones!

Cris didn’t make the final game list due to back problems, and so he ended up watching the game from a palco.  He would leave the game before it ended to go back to Vitoria to take a flight to Portugal.  Also in a palco was Xabi Alonso, who wasn’t called up for the game but had traveled home to spend the days off and catch the game alongside his family.

We also had Ángel di María and Mesut Özil teasing MFC Álvaro Borja Morata Martín, and Karim Benzema using the bench to do some triceps dips.  I love how Marcelo has the towel like a blanket around him!

José Callejón celebrated his goal by kissing the escudo (that never fails to cheer me up), and Marcelo responded to lamentable racist noises with class.  After the game, he said, “this has happened to me before, but I’m not upset.”  He added that “there are people who like watching football and others who don’t know how to behave… in a place where people come to enjoy themselves, where there are children and families who come to have a good time, it’s sad that these things happen.”

During this game, we also got to enjoy the returns of Álvaro Arbeloa, who had not played since April 6 against Levante, and Marcelo, who made his return from injury after five weeks out.

To end, a photo of Antonio and José that the former shared on twitter!

The team is back in training on Wednesday to begin preparing for the last game of the season, against Osasuna.

    What a shame that this is happening in football. I am seriously pissed off, poor Marcelo and all other who have to go through this when they are on the pitch. What a shame!!

    I think these moments outside of the field/game are really cute, thanks for sharing them with us! And also, classy, classy Marcelo. His reaction was truly brave and admirable! He’s such an amazing person.

    I’d like to ask you something, if it’s not too troublesome… well, inspired by this great blog, I finally decided to create one of my own (but about Barça hahaha after all, I’m culé). So, since your blog was my inspiration, I’d really appreciate it if you visited mine! I know you won’t follow or anything, since it probably doesn’t interest you, but just a visit from you would make me very happy! (and if you do visit, please forgive my obvious lack of skills in designing/making-my-blog-look-nice! I’ll figure it out later I guess :b)
    Anyway, here it is:

    Thanks either way, and also, thanks for inspiring me!! (:
