Therefore, it has clarified that the Valladolid City Council is “absolutely oblivious” to the decision to change the football club’s shield, which has chosen to carry it out “exclusively”, and without “at any time having consulted the institution or the mayor”, who has found out “like the rest of the citizens, when said decision has been made public”.

He has also made it clear, given the criticism and comments that have emerged on social networks, that neither the mayor nor the City Council “are going to pronounce on this modification”, since it is “only” for Real Valladolid

Puente even writes: “This is the society we have, the ‘I’ve heard what’ becomes the absolute truth no matter how bizarre it may be”, after having read phrases such as “a whiff of politics” or “how much Óscar Puente would have paid Ronaldo “, in reference to the change of the club’s shield.

Hence, after all this controversy, he opened a “thread” on his twitter profile to clarify this issue and reiterate that neither the City Council nor he had “nothing to do” with Real Valladolid’s decision to modify the shield, which It obeys its commitment “for a simpler image”, without a laureate or castles, and “more in line with the new times and maintaining its intention to grow as an image and brand”, according to the director of the Presidency cabinet of the sports entity , David Espinar
