La Rosaleda stadium welcomed one of the most decorated sportsmen both nationally and internationally. The best Spanish skater of all time, and sponsored by LaLiga Santander, Javier Fernández toured the Blue and Whites’ stadium accompanied by former Malaguista players, Duda, Manolo Gaspar and Basti.

Following his exploits at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, where he won the figure skating bronze medal, Fernández visited the city of Málaga on Monday to present his skating show, taking place on 17th November at Pabellón Martín Carpena.

During his visit to the home of the Blue and Whites, the skating champion toured every corner of La Rosaleda. After walking through the tunnel from the dressing rooms, he stepped on to the pitch. “This is the first time I’ve visited this great stadium. It’s wonderful and very welcoming. It’s a pleasure for me to be here, and hopefully I’ll come back often to enjoying watching the team play”, said the skater.

Malaguista anecdote

Javier Fernández has a very Malaguista anecdote he’ll always remember: “The first tazo I had was a Málaga one. From that first moment, I had a lot of affection for the Club”.

The skating genius has gone through some difficult times during his successful professional career: “This season I’ve taken part in competitions, some of which went well, some not so well. I believe the effort and hard work in daily training will be seen in matches. If the players stay together and united, and the fans continue supporting this great football team, there’s nothing they can’t achieve”.

Exchanging of gifts

After the visit, Málaga CF recognised the spectacular sports career of ‘Superjavi’. Former Blue and Whites’ players, Duda, Manolo Gaspar and Basti presented him with an official first team jersey bearing the number ‘1’ and ‘Javier Fernández’ on the back. In turn, the skater presented the Club with a personalised trophy.

Sponsored by LaLiga
