I come to answer the few questions that they asked me directly, in addition to those answered by Francisco Zenha. There was a common denominator that is important to clarify. Today the number of 20 million euros in debt of SAD to the club has been mentioned several times. It is recurrent that a rumor is made public, a lie, and then people are convinced that telling a lie many times will make it true, but it will never be true. It’s not 20 million euros, it’s 300 thousand euros”
