ERC de Lleida has planned sign Xavier Estrada Fernándezreferee who a complaint has been filed against the former vice president of the Technical Committee of Referees José María Enríquez Negreira for alleged sports corruption in payments for advising FC Barcelona and the one who, without naming him, Andreu Camps (vice-president of the RFEF) and Medina Cantalejo veiledly pointed out (president of the CTA) in the press conference that they offered on March 2, despite not mentioning his name directly.
This was explained this Monday at a press conference by the spokesperson and deputy general secretary of ERC, Marta Vilalta, who has pointed out that it is about a proposal pending approval by ERC in Lleida, and that must be ratified by its assembly.
Vilalta has argued that Estrada is a benchmark in the Lleida sports fieldlinked to training and grassroots, and in “defending the values of integrity in institutions, including sports”.
The ERC spokesperson has also assured that the complaint that the arbitrator filed against Negreira was a “personal decision” of Fernández Estrada, and that the only thing he does is reaffirm his commitment to cleanliness in sport.
However, he has stated that ERC will not enter into that decision and has insisted that its incorporation into the municipal list is pending “internal processes”.
