Santiago Silva serves a harsh and long sanction of two years without playing football due to a case of doping. He gave the striker that result for a fertility treatment and with a year already completed since his last official game he hopes that the measure will be reviewed.
“They were difficult moments, is something that had never happened to me in my career, something that I have to live it and today assume what is happening to me, the injustice is there and take it in the best possible way. With a lot of attitude, eager to continue playing football, which is what interests me the most.“He said about the hard blow it was to receive that sanction and how he currently carries it. He continues with his training and assures that he carries “this injustice” with great force.
He explained that he is in constant communication with his lawyer and that he could receive some news about it shortly. “We are waiting, I have not had any news yet, you can imagine where I have been to be able to reach important people, people who can give me a hand in this regard. The last meeting I had was with the president of AFA, Tapia, which was very positive. At that moment he told me that he was going to help me, that what I was experiencing was crazy. I also spoke with the AFA lawyer, who was going to give me a hand in this regard“He also remarked that perhaps these meetings “arrived late” since a long time has passed.
“I’m still here training, showing my attitude for myself, for my family, for the people who bank me a lot, which for me is a pleasure that people accompany me too”, highlighted and thanked the support of the fans, especially on social networks. “All I want is to keep playing football”added.
He was also clear with his arguments to defend his cause: “When it was my turn to demonstrate in the audience all the treatment that I was undergoing to have a child, I demonstrated it, so I don’t know what the problem is now”. He also explained that controls are currently changing a lot and that he believes that “he had to move a tree that never moved”.
