A restless end to the season in Varzim. Despite the victory against Mafra (1-0), Poveiro’s emblem fell in Liga 3, this in a match where he was involved in an exchange of charges with the Public Security Police.
The day before the match, Varzim issued a statement accusing the security forces of asking for an exorbitant sum, saying the match against Mafra was at risk of not taking place.
“Indeed, the board of directors of Varzim Sport Club has decided, initially, not to make the payment of the game police to the PSP, considering that the amount requested is a real exorbitant and totally unreasonable taking into account features of the event, which involves an opponent who will have virtually no fans in attendance.
It is not a virgin affair since, in the current sports season, the PSP has guided its position by charging values significantly above what was usual and what would be reasonable, regardless of the arguments presented by Varzim, who disputes this. behavior. Moreover, after the matches, they still have the nerve to frequently send debit notes, further aggravating the bill paid, in a manifest attitude of arrogance, against which Varzim can do nothing or almost nothing”, can we read, with Poveiros officials revealing that they intended to make the payment, not failing to “publicly denounce” the situation.
The answer came this Sunday from the Independent Union of PSP Agents, in a statement in which they criticized Varzim for considering it “panic attacks from sports leaders, who can only be totally desperate to have to answer to their supporters of yet another sports season disaster which has lasted since 2003”.
