The robberies are one of the great blots that modest football has suffered for years and the Unión Deportiva Los Barrios, a Cádiz-based team from the Third Division, was the victim of one of them early Monday morning at its facilities in the San Rafael Sports Center, in where the thieves took different training material, such as bars, tapes and weights, as well as five pairs of boots, first team and quarry clothes, in addition to balls.
In the current circumstances of crisis due to the coronavirus, the theft, reported to the Civil Guard, causes even more damage to the soccer players who have seen their boots disappear because they will be forced to make a significant expense to buy others with which to play the next season.
In the same sport in which billions of signings and contracts move, for modest footballers such as those of UD Los Barrios, a robbery such as that suffered on Monday represents economic bleeding. “In the stadium, there is a lack of vigilance,” laments the president of an entity that will have difficulties in dealing with these losses, since the coronavirus crisis has left the club, like many others in the Third Division, who have spent two months with little income, in a complicated economic situation. .
