Spanish coach Luis de la Fuente is disappointed by the behavior of fans who booed Spanish defender Marc Cucurella every time he touched the ball yesterday.

Defender Marc Cucurella was the main target of the spectators at the stadium in Munich, where he was met with loud boos whenever he touched the ball.

Who and why were they booing the Chelsea defender, who is generally known as a model athlete without any off-field incidents?

It quickly became clear that the boos were not coming from French fans, but from local neutral German fans, who made up the majority in the stadium. The Germans identified Cucurella as the main culprit for Germany's elimination from the European Championship, specifically due to an incident in extra time against Spain when referee Anthony Taylor did not call a handball.

After the match, Cucurella admitted that he had touched the ball with his hand but stressed the importance of respecting the referee's decision.

"I always respect the referee's decisions. Otherwise, I could also say that Toni Kroos deserved a red card," said Cucurella.

The result of these events was loud booing, to which Cucurella had no response after the match against France.

"These things happen, I am not to blame for this. I don't know what they wanted to achieve, but that's how it is. The most important thing is that we are in the final," said Cucurella. Spanish coach Luis de la Fuente was more critical.

"I don't know why they booed him, but it only motivated him more. I oppose any form of disrespect, and these people do not represent German society," said De La Fuente.
