The Mexican coach will serve the first of two suspension games against Villarreal, a sanction that he considers excessive
Javier Aguirrecoach of Majorcawill meet this Sunday against the Villarreal the first of the two sanction matches imposed by the Competition Committee after the direct red card that referee Díaz de Mera showed him, a decision that the Mexican does not share at all: “What the minutes say about my expulsion is absolutely a lie” , he remarked.
“I do not agree with the wording of the minutes. Nobody heard Javier Aguirre say nothing; I did hear Pablo (Maffeo, also expelled) say ‘this is a fucking shame’, but I didn’t say anything and I want to protest,” added the Mexican coach at the press conference prior to the visit to the Ciudad de Valencia stadium.
“I will watch the game from above and, the truth is that it looks very good, but I am paid to be below, not in a box or in the office. A preventive sanction for leaving my technical zone on the field at some point seems to me perfect, like against Sevilla, but not an expulsion for something I didn’t say. And I respect the referees, so I’ll put up with an unfair sanction for the drafting of the minutes”, assured the Vasco Aguirre.
In that context, Aguirre He said that his assistant, the Mallorcan Toni Amor, “will do well” on the benches of Ciudad de Valencia and Son Moix, as he already did in June 2020 when he replaced him on a visit with Leganés.

Also asked about the Villarreal of Quique Setién, the “Basque” He responded that it is “early” to assess what his colleague will bring to the “yellow submarine” game.
“All the coaches have their booklet and he will introduce his system little by little. Villarreal he is in the process of transitioning on the bench; It’s not easy to change coach from one day to the next, but I expect a difficult game. We are not going to an easy square; They have very good players, they have been working at a very good level for years. But we are excited to continue doing things well, although we have lacked that bit of luck in some games”, argued the Majorcan coach.
Aguirre He also referred to Pablo Maffeo’s injury – “he could force if he wasn’t injured”, he specified – and announced that he will include the Slovakian goalkeeper Dominik Greif and the Zimbabwean striker Tino Kadewere in the squad to travel to Valencia, once recovered from their respective injuries.
“Pablo is progressing favorably, Dominik and Tino are traveling to play. Both have sped up their recovery periods and are happy. I’m very happy for them because they haven’t had a good time, and it can already be said that we have recovered all the injured”, he asserted. Javier Aguirre.
