Madrid works on a device whose perimeters reach from Colón to Neptuno
However, given what happened in Cádiz, Madrid is already working on a special device to reduce risks. The Mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez Almeida, warned that a “very wide perimeter” will be established, with a “very limited” capacity from Colón, Neptuno and Puerta de Alcalá, to deter crowds. “We are going to require all security measures, such as wearing a mask on a perimeter that can reach from Colón to Puerta de Alcalá, and even to Neptuno square.”
The mayor advocates celebrating the title from the balconies. “We have been applauding the toilets throughout the pandemic. Now let’s raise the flags of Real Madrid, but as far as possible do not get close to Cibeles ”.
Almeida has also revealed that, from the consistory, they are not in favor of the team going to the famous source. “I am aware that the players are possibly wanting to come, logically after a very complicated, very long season, they have made a tremendous effort. But as city council we are in favor of the team not coming this time ”.
Message that Real Madrid has accepted. In a statement, the white team asks that Real Madrid celebrate the title at home and rules out visiting the Cibeles and any other institution because “we must all contribute with absolute responsibility to avoid risks of contagion.”
