Baena denies mocking Valverde over the loss of his child
Alex Baena flatly denied on social networks that he had told Fede Valverde to "cry now that your son is not going to be born", as the Uruguayan's entourage claims and which was the trigger for the Real Madrid player's aggression towards the Villarreal player in the Bernabeu car park.
"It is TOTALLY FALSE THAT I SAID THAT," Baena wrote on both his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Baena also made reference to Valverde's punch although he did not name him at any point: "Very sad for the aggression I suffered after the match and surprised by what is being said about me."
Muy contento con la impresionante victoria del equipo en un escenario como el Santiago Bernabéu, pero al mismo tiempo muy triste por la agresión que he sufrido tras el partido y sorprendido por lo que se está diciendo sobre mi persona. ES TOTALMENTE FALSO QUE YO DIJERA ESO. pic.twitter.com/PPHpf7xhK8— Álex Baena (@alexbbaena) April 9, 2023
Fede Valverde's entourage's side of the story
"In the Copa del Rey match, Baena kicked Fede and told him: 'Cry now that your son is not going to be born'. That stayed there, but today he said something similar and Fede got heated. That's why he waited for him in the car park... and told him that 'he wasn't messing when it came to the family'," explained Valverde's entourage to MARCA.
Baena dismisses the allegation
In order to dismantle the theory of Valverde's entourage, Baena retweeted the comment of a user (@elmodelo14) in which he assures that it is totally impossible that the Villarreal player said that phrase to the Uruguayan since the Copa match was played before Mina Bonino, the Real Madrid player's partner, revealed in an interview the problems she had suffered at the beginning of her pregnancy.
