The Athletic Club player has been involved in a great controversy on social networks due to his unpublished answers in a rapid testWilliams has admitted with a carefree laugh that he has a “zero” level of Basque, something that has not been liked at all by a large part of the fansAmong other controversial responses, the footballer has assured that if he had Pedro Sánchez in front of him he would ask him “to lower taxes”Nico Williams, Athletic Club player, has granted an interview with a quick test format to the MARCA newspaper that has generated great controversy in social networks. The conflict comes because the player, only 20 years old, has admitted with a laugh that he has a “zero” level of Basque, something that has not pleased the vast majority of fans at all, who are amazed at the naturalness with which reply. But it is not the only response from the player that has made users raise their hands to their heads. Williams was born in Navarra and has been playing in the lower categories of Athletic Club since 2013. They have been wearing the red and white shirt for nine years, which is why part of the fans say they do not understand the laughter that comes from not knowing anything about Basque. In fact, there are many fans who share messages on social networks such as: “For the philosophy of Athletic Club de Bilbao to be respectable, they should demand the language of the country.” “He laughs at us” A large part of the fans is surprised because Nico Williams, who has been playing in the Basque Country for almost ten years and lives in the Biscayan capital, does not know how to speak Basque; but also because his carefree laugh shows an attitude totally opposed to learning the language. The anger among a large part of the fans is remarkable; Nico Williams. Gutaz barre egiten” tweets one user, which translates to “Nico Williams. He laughs at us”. Nico Williams level of Euskera, 0. For the philosophy of Athletic Club de Bilbao to be respectable, they should demand the language of the country.— Araia_fanatic (@penalti_demanu) September 21, 2022 But not all fans are Displeased with Williams, some defend him by claiming that he is only 20 years old, that he is a bit immature and that he has no evil in his messages. “What would I like him to know? Well of course. What is required to know how to speak it? Not even thinking”, comments a follower of Athletic Club on Twitter. Another of them responds to the controversy: “Crucifying a kid for responding nervously (…). His family doesn’t know Basque, he will have learned the basics and you want to impose everything on him”. What a blow to Nico Williams. He responds nervously and hence the laughter. He doesn’t look down on anyone, least of all Euskera. What would I like him to know? Well of course. What is required to know how to speak it? Not even thinking.— Ander Garizurieta (@GariAnder) September 21, 2022 I have to bite my tongue regarding the Nico Williams issue, but what a fabric with some. Crucifying a kid for responding nervously when CLEARLY the other day he was singing the txoriak txori. His family does not know Basque, he will have learned the basics and you want to impose everything on him + — Josu (@ josucrespo23) September 21, 2022 Message for the President of the Government A quick test in which the only controversy is not related to Basque . To the question “What would you say to Pedro Sánchez?” the Athletic player replies “Let him lower his taxes”, when clearly a supposed discount in personal income tax or in Patrimony announced by Sánchez would not affect him too much since the player lives in Bilbao and pays his taxes to the Biscayan Treasury. And the quick answers keep flowing. The journalist asks him “If you weren’t a footballer, what would you have been?” to which Williams responds with a surprised “buf” accompanied by a justification: “Studying pretty badly…” According to some tweeters, the nerves, or the tension of the moment, made him respond with nervous laughter and did not allow him to delve into his answers . To the question “What would you have invented?”, the rojiblanco answers “Football” and “What is the worst thing you have?” the footballer responds with a quick and simple “Lose”.
