The Alberola make double: they call today to Madrid and Castilla

first_imgRodolfo Molina & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>FOOTBALL 19/20 Antonio Alberola Rojas, next to Quique Setién.Rodolfo Molina (DAILY AS) The Alberola Rojas brothers, Antonio and Javier, will be in charge of whistling Real Madrid today against Celta and its subsidiary, Castilla, against Rayo Majadahonda. There is the strange coincidence that two brothers dedicate themselves to arbitration and that they also ring the same day at the same club.Javier, the little one with 28 years, pita in First Division, siendor the youngest referee to debut in the highest category of Spanish football. This will be the third time I whistle the whites and the second time at the Bernabéu. The first time was in a Cup match against Melilla, which ended with a 6-1 in favor of the whites. The second was this season in the victory of Mallorca 1-0. Within the CTA he is very well considered and is considered an arbitrator with a great international projection. His brother, Antonio, 29, will whistle Castilla de Raúl before the Majadahonda on Cerro del Espino. The Castilian-Manchego referee usually referees in Segunda B, but also serves as the fourth referee in LaLiga Santander matches on occasion. On February 2 he did it at Barcelona-Levante. “Many times they confuse us, they tell me that I have been arbitrating in some field and it was really my brother,” Javier recently confessed in the Game.last_img read more
