The Alevín give a lesson in fair play

The Alevín A of Málaga CF, who participated in the Costa de la Luz Tournament, stopped the match that was being played to turn their backs on a dispute in the stands.

At the MCF Academy hundreds of players are trained in order that tomorrow they are great players, but, above all, Málaga CF teaches its young players the need for fair play and to be good people, integrity and values, or put it simply: the values of the Blue and Whites. That's why, when last Sunday, in a game that our Alevín A faced against Sporting Clube de Portugal, there was an argument in the stands, the coaching staff and all the players turned their backs on the fans and later indicated that this was not the way things work.

It all happened in the semifinals of the Costa de la Luz Tournament. In a tense encounter, a father of the rival team rebuked one of our players, which started a small discussion between both parties, which soon ended when the entire Blue and Whites squad showed clear signs of disapproval. The match ended without any incident, with cordiality and with both fans apologising.

This isolated fact has to stay just that: an anecdote. Because the relatives of all MCF Academy players always show exemplary behaviour. The Club itself insists on the importance of giving a good image and for this reason Málaga CF has a protocol and a psychology department that is in continuous contact with children and parents so that everyone has an irreproachable behaviour.
