Morales reacted in surprise and told Padrón that there was no reason to disqualify him. Then, in a more friendly tone, he told her that he saw her very upset. “This looks like a chicken coop and I am an elegant people,” the journalist mentioned before Morales’ defense attempt, who insisted that his criticism was merely football.

Despite his surprise, Álvaro tried not to lose the fight and immediately began to question Carolina. “What does it have to do with whether I have played? That is not an argument,” said the presenter. Padrón’s response was as forceful as her first attack.

“Those who have never played does not know how much it costs to win a game, especially in a group stage of the Champions League,” she replied.

“I am not disqualifying you, I defer the triumph of Barcelona. He told me that I played soccer, and it’s true. Under that argument, you couldn’t talk about soccer either,” insisted Álvaro Morales, still surprised by the strength of the attack he had just received.
