“The chants of ‘Fuck Osasuna’ were very bad and the chants against Greenwood were very bad too. He(greenwood) is a player who in the end, the justice system had its say. He is a very good player but if we talk about chants we should talk about all the chants and not just some,” the Head coach stated.
