Why Didn't Valverde Celebrates Real Madrid's Victory Over Atletico?

In the Spanish Super Cup final, Real Madrid played against Atletico, and they also won the cup. 

But Valverde didn't celebrate their victory. In the game's final minute, when Morata was about to score a goal for his club, Valverde tackled him very badly. 

He saved his team in the closing minute of the game. In a post-match interview, he said that it was the last option to do for his team.

He admitted that what he did to Morata was not good. 

He said that it was not the right thing to do to a player who was playing for his club, but he said he didn’t have a choice at that time. 

He said he tried everything he could to stop him, but none worked, so he tackled him badly. 

He apologized to Morata for his action. He couldn’t celebrate like other players as he was feeling guilty. 

He said he was happy to win the title for the club, not with himself for his last-minute tackle. 

Because of that, he was restricted from playing some matches. The coach of the club supported him and said that he did what was right at the time. 

He praised Valverde and said that they might score a goal against them if he hadn't done that. 

Valverde Took Off His Diaper To Celebrate His Goal When He Was A Kid

Valverde showed his interest in football at the age of two. His father made a goalpost at their home and started kicking balls and scoring goals. 

His parents enrolled him in a football academy when he was three years old after knowing he was meant to play football. 

The academy was for babies, not for school boys. He started playing football as a toddler. 

He scored his first goal at the age of three, and to celebrate his goal, he took off his diaper.

Valverde Didn't Like Running When He Was In The Academy

Valverde is the engine on the pitch, as he covers most of the area while playing, but it was not always the same for him. 

When Valverde was at the youth academy, his coach tried him to play from the defensive midfield position. 

But he was against his coach as he didn’t like running and performing defensive duties. 

He wanted to play as an attacking midfielder

After that, the coach dropped him out, but later, he was called back to the team, and he became one of the crucial players of the team.
