Villarreal midfielder Alex Baena has published a statement about his incident with Real Madrid’s Fede Valverde.
“Last Saturday I was assaulted by a professional colleague. After the event, some statements allegedly made by his entourage came to light, in which it was said that I had wished for the harm of a family member. As could not be otherwise, no evidence has been published to prove the facts that I am accused of.
A misfortune was used to justify the aggression and there are lies that hurt more than the blows. The damage that is being done to my family is irreparable and unjustifiable: threats, insults and even private messages wishing death.
Yesterday I reported the case to the police. Let justice do its job. My only objective now is to focus on my profession and help my club to achieve its objectives.”
