The CEDD hasn’t dealt in his meeting with the appeal presented by Athletic Club so that the caution suspension to the player Carlos Gurpegi is withdrawed.
Although we aren’t surprised, in view of his delaying attitude showed till the date by the institutions in charge of administering justice, we think that is regrettable what is doing to Carlos Gurpegi and to Athletic Club. With this one it will be 6 matchdays that our player hasn’t been able to play, without having any formal punishment over his person.
In Athletic’s opinion, not only our player can’t play and his presumption of innocence is violated reiteratively, but the constant and unjustifiable delays in the process make difficult, even the work of defence of the interests of gurpegi and of the Athletic Club itself.
On the other side, concerning the file opend by the Committee of Competition, underline that Carlos gurpegi and Athletic Club have given and will give new pleas and requests of proofs in coming days.
Likewise, about alleged informations appeared the last days, we must say with abslute firmness that nor the player Carlos Gurpegi, nor Athletic Club, have received any proposal to make any kind of test by the CSD, something that not even is appropriate. On the other side, remind that the player Carlos Gurpegi has been the only part who has made any proposal of that kind, just as we informed by means of official release.
