In the first place, it is important to note that, in due course, the UAR, through different authorities of the highest level, dedicated time to provide an open and transparent dialogue with the player.
Likewise, it should be noted that, in various situations, while his contractual relationship lasted, the player was untruthful before the institution, affecting the normal professional relationship with the entity.
Proof of this is that, as a result of an absurd injunction presented by him, on August 8, 2016, the judge rejected the “in limine” proposal, even objecting to the way in which he tried to involve justice in said proceeding.
Thus, it was clearly demonstrated in the facts that the UAR at no time limited the player’s pass to the club with which he had already negotiated, surreptitiously, while he was in the entity, a situation that he had deliberately concealed from both the institution and its members. sports references.
The Argentine Rugby Union acts with transparency and with the clear objective of strengthening the values of responsibility, coherence and consistency that have served to build its reputation throughout its history.
