CSD President Miguel Cardenal Addresses Various Topics Including Debt In The LFP
Published May 17, 2013
Cardenal also answered questions pertaining to several other issues:
ON OPERATION PUERTO: "It can take its toll on us. It's a sentencing that has caused much consternation and true embarrassment, with all respect to the judicial authority. There are blood bags of athletes that a doctor treated to improve their performances in an illegal way, and we cannot know who they are. We disagree with this and are going to appeal the sentencing and find out who are the people that are cheating."
ON CLEANING UP CYCLING: "It is already making changes to adapt the calendar to the cyclists' possibilities. Cycling's agreement is to be an unmistakably clean sport. I have worked a lot with the federation, and I have seen what it is doing."
ON MADRID 2020: "It's what we are working for. Few projects bring together such a majority of our society. It is a very beautiful project from the social and economic point of view to be able to have an interesting contribution."
On football match-fixing: "The concern before was doping, now it is match-fixing. It is a widespread problem that should have been stopped much earlier. I trust in the new direction of the Spanish Football League (LFP), with President JAVIER TEBAS at the head" (EP, 5/16).
