Marca: Spanish FA claim no responsibility over El Clasico security
- The FA have published a statement regarding the upcoming match on December 18.
- They do not want to held accountable in case things go south during El Clasico.
- Catalan police are yet to guarantee security with everyone feeling quite nervous.
The matches between Real Madrid and Barcelona have always generated controversy, on and off the pitch. However, the game on December 18 is going to attract even more unwanted attention. The reason is the unstable political climate in Catalonia.
With Real Madrid having to worry about the team getting to Camp Nou without any problems and Catalan police admitting they cannot guarantee anything, the logical conclusion was to turn to the Spanish Football Association.
However, their recent announcement makes it clear that the FA are not going to do anything to help.
"The RFEF holds no scope for security matters, just as in every match in official competition and, being a public spectacle, does not hold any type of responsibility in the area of security. Similarly, as usual, the RFEF is in contact with the security forces to coordinate the arrival of the arbitration team to the Camp Nou according to established protocols," reads the statement.
