A week ago, Pedro Pablo Pichardo returned from his honeymoon. He came home, turned on the TV, went to the bathroom and his wife called him: “Look what they say about you!”. Today’s topic was Nelson Evora’s words about the Benfica athlete – “Picardo was bought for short term resultsHe thought it was time to fight back, he told Observador radio station – and recently crowned European triple jump champion:I’m not a whoreNor like you who left Benfica badly because they offered you more.” registerPicardo now admits that the language he used was “aggressive,” but in the heat of the moment he had no other reaction.

“The word was offensive. After a few days, I see that the words may have been a bit aggressive, but I’m already tired of the topic. Since my arrival in Portugal, there have been less good comments one after another and I kept silent. It was a hot moment.”, he told our newspaper this Sunday on the sidelines of the inauguration of the Walking and Running Center (CMC), in Quinta do Anjo (Palmela), which I sponsored.

He continued, acknowledging that this was the only way to get the message across to Nelson Evora: “I don’t have his phone number, he blocked me on Instagram; I apologize for the tone and the words I used, very aggressive, but the message was directed at the person. Whenever I have the opportunity, you always talk about something less good: documents, jumps… I’m tired this time. I didn’t respond well, with some less good words, but This is over for me. I apologize to those who felt bad about my words, with the expressions I used. The purpose was not to offend anyone, but that the person knew that I could also respond. That I could stand up for myself, and that I would like to continue my career. He leaves: “If You had a problem to solve, it’s with you and not with me. I’ve never been his friend, there’s no way there are differences. I know him as an athlete, and besides, we don’t have any ties. I was offended when I said I’d bought. I’ve never been for sale. I got to Here, and I had another show, and I didn’t come to rob anyone’s place.”

When asked if he would be willing to sit down with Nelson Evora for an understanding, the Benfica athlete is clear: “Not now. It’s better to leave everything like this, I stay in my place and he is in his place. Now it’s too late to talk about anything, ”not even sSports federations decrees For the jumpers to resolve the conflict involving them in a “peaceful and civil way” they seem to deter Pichardo: “I never had any problems with him. I just answered now, I never attacked him. I thought I had to fight back, there were just too many attacks,” he concludes.
