Santiago Silva thanked this Monday the multiple messages of support that, under the motto #LetTankPlay, demand the authorization of the Uruguayan who in November was suspended for two years as a result of a positive doping as a result of a treatment he was performing in order to become a father. The forward also spoke about the death of ‘Morro’ García.
“I did not want to overlook and thank you for all the messages that soccer people have sent me on different social networks, not soccer, colleagues”, Silva said in a video posted on his social networks.
On November 11, the footballer had explained to ESPN F90: “I am suspended for a 2019 match between Gimnasia LP and Newell’s. After three months they tell me that I tested positive for an anti-doping. I was undergoing fertility treatment to have my third son with my wife and she was applying a gel for a low level of a hormone “.
Always with you Tank, I bank you to die.#LetTankPlay

“They are retiring me, I am not going to play when I am 42 years old. It is a very sad experience, I do not want to end my career like this, I am going to fight it to the end, as always,” Silva had added about the two-year sentence. .
This Monday, the twitter account @marketargento asked to do a Trending Topic to ‘bank’ the Uruguayan ‘because wanting to have children is not a crime’. #DejenJugarAlTanque began to be a trend in social networks and, for example, Flaco Schiavi or Juan Cruz Komar joined the claim. The captain of Talleres de Córdoba commented: “Al Tanque was unfairly suspended for two years for ‘doping’ while undergoing treatment to become a father; let’s not forget it. He deserves to finish his career playing and shining.”
Silva thanked such support and assured: “Here we are, we had to live this injustice and as I always say with a lot of attitude, always finding the positive and always up”.
Finally, the player born on December 9, 1980 also referred to the death of Santiago ‘Morro’ García: “We had to live a very sad weekend where we lost a colleague, a person, a human being, not a robot, so let’s have empathy, solidarity and respect. “
