Pedro Sánchez attended the EuroBasket final as a fan with privileges. The President of the Government ‘sneaked’ into the Mercedes Benz Arena to enjoy the final of the continental tournament between France and Spain, skipping the protocol rules. The president sat next to other authorities without respecting the dress code.
The head of the Spanish Government took up residence at the foot of the track – where tickets are the most expensive – in a kind of VIP box to watch the game like Jack Nicholson as a landowner. Pedro Sánchez was without a tie at all times causing all kinds of comments in the networks for their lack of decorum.
Despite the fact that Pedro Sánchez has defended the fact of not wearing a tie in extreme heat, the fact is that in Berlin –at the time of the final– the thermometer it marked 9 degrees. The president olympically went from dressing like a state president.
Previously, the leader had already raised a cloud of dust after going to Berlin using the Falcon in these times where cost containment and environmental responsibility are requested. Pedro Sánchez did not care because he attended the game as a fan with privileges to which he went to take the photo in case of victory.
«Everyone before the Eurobasket was thinking that it was a transit selection. We had that generation led by Pau Gasol that took us to the top and now we have this young generation that has been hitting hard, but was not yet old enough or mature enough to be able to compete in the highest category. Suddenly we have found this selection, “ Sánchez said in the pre-match before getting into his VIP box, albeit without the proper dressing room.
