European Football Championship: Teammates on whistles against Spain’s Cucurella: “Disgraceful”

Spaniard Marc Cucurella is loudly booed in the European Championship semi-final. This displeases a colleague.

The boos from alleged German fans against Spanish national football player Marc Cucurella have angered his teammates. The 25-year-old had to endure the displeasure of spectators after his handball against Germany during the 2:1 semi-final win over France.

“I think it’s a disgrace,” said defender Dani Vivian in Munich after reaching the European Championship final. “No player deserves that. I think anyone who goes to a football pitch to boo someone has no respect for the person who is doing their job.”

In the quarter-final against the DFB selection, Cucurella was hit by a shot from Jamal Musiala. There was no penalty awarded; Germany was eliminated 1:2 after extra time.

Coach: Motivated him even more

When asked about the debate, Cucurella commented on ZDF: “It doesn’t matter to me. We have to stay focused. If it’s talked about, it’s part of the game.” The Spanish fans reacted to the whistles, cheered loudly and initiated several “Cucurella” chants for the defender.

“I don’t know why he was booed,” said coach Luis de la Fuente. “What they did was motivate him even more. He is a professional and knows how to handle pressure.” The people who whistled did not represent the sport or Germany. Germany was an exceptional host, said the coach.
