Contacted by the FEB 4th Marta Xargay wanted to reiterate that ‘the Spanish Basketball Federation was not aware of what was happening to me and I want to thank the support they have always given me, as well as my colleagues and the rest of the coaching staff of the selection, ‘”he adds.
The FEB 4th insists that “it never had knowledge of the situation that the former player was going through, and that even when she was warned of the existence of critical information with the performance of the national coach was she granted the possibility of knowing its content.
Had he been able to know what is now being denounced, he would not have kept Lucas Mondelo in office, even if it was hours before the start of the Olympic Games. ”
She admits that the federative body “was aware of the deterioration of the relationship between the coach and the players, but was never informed of any behavior of this type, but everything was limited to the scope of the usual relations between a coach and his team.”
“This circumstance was also valued, along with the non-achievement of the sporting objectives regulated in his contract, when after the end of Spain’s participation in the Olympic Games it was decided that Lucas Mondelo should not continue to lead the Women’s National Team”, she adds the FEB, who has put Xargay ” all its structures for what you may need”.
“In addition, he has expressed his gratitude for having shared his story, which can be very useful so that children who are beginning to dedicate themselves to basketball know how to identify these types of attitudes and make them known before they become a major problem “, concludes the FEB 4th launch date.
