The absence of Iago Aspas in the list of the European Championship unworthy of Celtism
They do not understand that Luis Enrique did not take their numbers into account
Que Iago Blades is not part of the list of summoned by Luis Enrique Martínez for the Eurocup has not surprised in Vigo, taking into account the antecedents, but he has outraged many. Celtism finds no explanation for the fact that Moaña, being the maximum assistant of LaLiga, the Spanish striker who accumulates the most minutes and games, and the second highest national scorer – just behind Gerard Moreno-, does not count for the selector. Aspas is also the only Spanish player who has not dropped below 14 goals in the last six consecutive leagues.
Luis Enrique, who gave up two more places in the call – he cited 24 when he could call up to 26 -, does not believe that Blades can add to the Selection more than any of the seven attackers called, but the numbers say otherwise. The records of the moañés are better than those of Dani Olmo, Mikel Oyarzabal, Álvaro Morata, Ferrán Torres, Adama Traoré and Pablo Sarabia, forwards who will be in the Eurocup alongside Gerard Moreno, the only one who improves the Celtic player’s scoring figure.
Iago’s absence Blades It provoked numerous reactions on social networks, and within minutes the footballer’s name became a trending topic. Next August he will turn 34 years old, so his options to wear the red one again are blurred. Aspas adds 18 games with the national team in which he accumulates 6 goals and 6 assists – he participated in the Russia World Cup and his high heel goal earned Spain a pass to the round of 16. Robert Moreno -when he was in charge- and Luis Enrique They have not summoned him for two years despite his extraordinary performance at Celta.
Blades He did not comment on the matter on social networks. The one of Moaña took advantage of yesterday to comment on the closing of the season in a publication with family images in which he announced that he will be a father for the third time.
Another Celtic who will not attend the European Championship is Brais mendez, who also appeared in the list of fifty players shortlisted by Luis Enrique. The midfielder’s 9 league goals and outstanding performance since the arrival of Coudet they have not been enough either. TO Brais You still have the option to participate in the Tokyo Olympics. A decision that passes through Luis de la Fuente, also coach of the sub-21 -a team that will play the European with the celestial player Fran Beltran in their ranks. Okay, due out this summer, he will be the only Celtic in the continental tournament.
Celta, who last March, after the draw signed by Spain against Greece, published a controversial tweet claiming that Iago Aspas should have been among those summoned by the national coach, yesterday also shared an image of Brais Méndez and Aspas himself shortly after Luis Enrique’s list was known.
