The international basketball referee Daniel Hierrezuelo claimed that athletes can "go out on the street to do sports on their own", something that he does not understand that at this time they consider "more dangerous" than "strolling through the supermarket" in the face of the current restrictions derived from the state of alarm.
After learning that children will be able to go out on the street in a limited and controlled way from April 27 in the new extension of the period of confinement announced by the Government, Hierrezuelo asked himself on his social networks: "Why can't athletes go out on the street to do sport alone?"
The Malaga referee specified that he is pleased with the Government's decision to alleviate the confinement of children in a controlled manner, fulfilling certain conditions, "because it is necessary", although appealed that it also be allowed athletes to practice their activity outdoors alone and in compliance with security measures.
In the current situation “ it is more dangerous to go outside doing sports than strolling around the supermarket ”, the referee of the ACB and the Euroleague ironized.
“ Health is essential at this time for the population. I go to the supermarket and I see the large surfaces with enough people, and that is not prohibited. But doing sports, yes, "he insisted.
The international referee added that he does not want to" enter into dynamics of destructive criticism ", although wondered if" there is any coherence in everything we are experiencing in Spain »in relation to the fact that children and not athletes are limited to leave.
From his confinement at home, where he continues to train in the physical part and also with the preparation On other aspects of arbitration in a telematic way, Daniel Hierrezuelo expects that the competitions will resume, both in the Endesa League and in the Euroleague when the health authorities determine it.
The Malaga referee , 49, debuted at the ACB in 1995 and since then has led more than 800 matches, including three finals to four in the Euroleague, two men's and women's European Championships, five Copa del Rey finals and eight from the ACB.
