In full controversy over the means of transport of King Emeritus Juan Carlos I to the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, Pedro Sánchez has wanted to make a new show of power with his inseparable Falcón. The Prime Minister will fly to Berlin in the next few hours on his private plane to attend the EuroBasket final between France and Spain.
Pedro Sánchez has never hidden that his favorite sport is basketball and for this reason he will take advantage of this Sunday afternoon to be at the Mercedes Benz Arena in the German capital. The president will fly without the Minister of Culture and Sports, Miquel Iceta, who has decided to stay in the Iberian Peninsula as the sport of the basket is not one of the ones that most interests him. Yes, the Secretary of State for Sport will be there, Jose Manuel Franco.
The leader of the PSOE will try to support the selection and, by the way, make some profit from a completely unexpected final a month ago. Pedro Sánchez already experienced last weekend a slap in the face of the world of water polo, who that same day had won European gold in women and bronze in men.
Various players took it upon themselves to remind Pedro Sánchez of his triumph after the president celebrated Spain’s move to the quarterfinals at the EuroBasket after eliminating Lithuania. “What a great game! #LaFamilia has not stopped believing in victory until extra time. You are incredible and you have given a lesson in effort and teamwork to get to the quarterfinals and take Spanish basketball to the top,” Sánchez said on his social networks, hinting that he was inviting himself to the outcome of the championship.
Now the Prime Minister did not want to miss the opportunity to perform in Germany without any pretext other than to attend the match that will measure Spain against France a few hours after traveling to New York. FIBA does not plan for Pedro Sánchez to give any trophy after the match. We will see how the president manages to get out in the photo.
