Football most important says Spanish TV presenter in wake of Manchester bombing

Antonio Jimenez

A SPANISH TV presenter has come under fire after his comments on live television following the Manchester bombing.

The 13TV program El Cascabel was live when the terror attack occurred and the outrageous statement was recorded.

Antonio Jimenez announced that there “was some sort of explosion in the Manchester Arena stadium,” and followed up with the question: “Which stadium is that? That’s not United’s is it?”


A reporter continued to report the news as it unfurled and once finished Jimenez interjected again.

“Manchester Arena isn’t Manchester United nor City’s ground is it?”

After an awkward pause he continued: “It isn’t right? We football fans don’t know if Manchester Arena is one of the two teams’ stadiums”

A co-presenter then said: “I’ll give you a short lesson, there are more things in life than football.”

“No sir, football is the most important thing,” Jimenez responded.

Spanish social media was quick to condemn his comments, calling it “embarassing” and that he should be “ashamed of himself.”


  1. Este tipejo, Antonio Jiménez, es un típico representante de la cadena de televisión 13tv ultra-fascista y que apoya descaradamente todas las actuaciones del partido del gobierno, incluida la corrupción.
    Es un inmoral, indigno de presentarse ante el público. Como español, me avergüenzo de “compatriotas” como éste.

    This stupid, Antonio Jiménez, is a typical representative of the ultra-fascist 13tv television network and blatantly supports all performances of the government party, including corruption acts.
    He is immoral, unworthy to appear before the public. As a Spaniard, I am ashamed of “compatriots” like this.
    My condolences to the British people.
