The day after of the earthquake that shook Valdebebas This Thursday, when a dozen Judicial Police agents burst into the locker room to take away four youth players for recording and disseminating a sexual video of a minor, it was once again marked by tension… despite the club’s efforts to regain normality. The shock is still latent among managers, coaches and footballers not involved in the scandal, who are firmly urged not to offer too many details, even to those closest to them, and to focus solely on sports. He Castilla faces an always important derby against Atlético B this Saturday (7:30 p.m.) and C receives Trival Valderas on Sunday (12:00).
The three players who were arrested, one from Castilla and two from C, They have exercised with their respective teams this Friday morning, like the fourth footballer who was transferred to the Tres Cantos Command to testify as “investigated.” All they were released after giving a statement for hours on Thursday afternoon, waiting for the investigation to take its course and the judge to determine (or not) his guilt.
Real Madrid has made the decision not to separate them until there is a ruling that, if necessary, condemn them. The judge has not yet opened the investigation because all possible information is being collected. At noon this Friday, the C coaching staff still had doubts. on whether or not to summon those involved for the weekend game. It would seem the most logical thing not to put them on the list, but at the same time that would reveal who the players involved in the case are…
Raúl González’s staff, for their part, Yes, he has decided to call all the members of Castilla for the match against the colchoneros. Although the coach usually leaves some players off the list in the matches that are played at the Alfredo di Stéfano, they consider that on this occasion the most appropriate thing is to call one hundred percent of his team.
It is worth remembering that the names of the accused have not yet been made public, despite the fact that several media outlets and X (Twitter) users erroneously published the faces and personal data of footballers that have nothing to do with the case.
The latter, evidently, have been the most affected by the harassment received through social networks in recent hours. On Thursday night, their X and Instagram profiles They began to be filled with insults and comments, which even extended to the accounts of their partners and family members. This Friday, Real Madrid took it upon themselves to reassure them and to guarantee that all those who associated their faces with the commission of two alleged crimes so serious (revelation of secrets and recording and disseminating child pornography) they will not go unpunished.
Andres CamposCanarian C midfielder, was the first to issue an official statement at 10:14 p.m. this Friday and “flatly deny” false accusations: “My name and face have been wrongly linked to a crime I did not commit at all. I want to make it clear that I am taking immediate legal action to protect my name and reputation. At the same time, I am being assisted by my legal team.” Alexander Germanalso from the Canary Islands and from the same team, followed him at 10:22 p.m.: “The last few hours have been extremely hard. I am working closely with my legal team to take all necessary legal steps to address this defamation and clear my name. “I am confident that justice will be done, and the truth will prevail.”
Tranquility in the club
At the top of Real Madrid and its quarry, meanwhile, they are trying to progressively regain normality. The entity trusts that the matter will not escalate, appealing to the existence of serious errors in the judicial process, and the club’s lawyer has personally taken it upon himself to speak with the detainees and try to alleviate their concern. Two of those arrested have been placed in the hands of the prestigious office Cuatrecasas waiting for the open case to continue burning stages. The crime of revealing secrets, regulated between articles 197 and 201 of the Penal Code, contemplates penalties of between one and five years in prison; that of dissemination of child pornography, which could be added to the previous offense, includes the same punishment.
Chronology of events
The investigation into the Real Madrid youth players is based on a complaint filed on September 6 in Mogán (Canary Islands) by the mother of a 16-year-old girl. Presumably, One of those arrested recorded on video the consensual sexual relations he had with the young woman and later spread it among his colleagues. via WhatsApp. The events took place in mid-June in a beach club.
After that, Court No. 3 of San Bartolomé de Tirajana (Las Palmas) ordered the Civil Guard to bring the Madrid players to justice. The agents appeared in Valdebebas this Thursday and, after ‘sealing’ the premises, they detained three footballers and took the Command to a room under “investigated” condition. His statement in the presence of lawyers was only the beginning of a procedure that can last months. The investigation, legally, has a maximum time limit of six in simple cases and 18 if it is considered complex, with the possibility of extension in both cases at the request of the Public Prosecutor’s Office.
