The newspaper library weighs, and a lot. So much so that today the news broke that Ronaldo will be ambassador of the famous betting house of Betfair and, in addition, has indicated that to “celebrate it”, there will be a welcome bonus for new users. However, this news clashes with that announced in 2020 by the adviser and director of the Cabinet of the Presidency of Real Valladolid, David Espinar, who pointed out on January 15 of that year that they had “rejected” several sponsorship offers for the club, “among them several bookmakers.”

A decision that was given by the belief of the club chaired by Ronaldo Nazario that it was better “opt for other ways“. “We understood that other sponsors were better suited to the profile of subscribers,” he said at the time.

It is true that this new brand image for Betfair does not affect Real Valladolid at all, since it is unique and exclusive Ronaldo Nazario as a person who will act as such, but it should be remembered that Espinar boasted in January 2020 that in addition to the courses offered by LaLiga, they have “trained the entire youth academy on the risk of betting” at the same time that they have “the firm commitment to defend the integrity of footballers”.

A didactic work that can now be questioned when seeing how the club’s highest representative, as a representative and influential figure of it, has become brand image of one of the things that Real Valladolid rejected as a sponsor due to its “risks”.
