He also mentioned the more than twenty thousand Mallorquinistas who travelled to Seville. “Thank you for being exemplary supporters, for your contagious enthusiasm, for your absolute unity, leaving aside any other differences,” he said.

He also had words of thanks for the coach, Javier Aguirre, and for the president of RCD Mallorca, Andy Kohlberg, “for his commitment to football in our islands”.
