Diego de Paz, former wheelchair basketball player and Paralympic at the Barcelona 92, Atlanta 96 and London 2012 Games, used a tweet from Carousel Deportivo which included Álvaro Morata’s statements after the game against Poland to send a message to the Spanish striker.
You are wrong Morata, free is to play in the Spanish Wheelchair Basket Team for 23 years as I did, and not to look for stupid excuses when you are no better than your rival. I wish they would have whistled me as well as you, it would be a sign that the BSR would be a mass sport. https://t.co/b17TNGqzTZ

The Juventus player from Turin went so far as to declare that he did not care what people thought when asked by the fans. “Let them say what they want, let’s see if now I have to worry about what they say … we are in a country where giving an opinion is free and easy.”
Something that Diego de Paz quoted on Twitter responding to the Madrilenian. “You are wrong Morata, free is to play in the Spanish Basketball Team in a wheelchair for 23 years as I did, and not to look for stupid excuses when you are not better than your rival. I wish they had whistled me as well as you, it would be a sign that Roller Basketball would be a mass sport. “
