Alzamora: Marc deserves to be respected

Emilio Alzamora asks for a "return to normal" after Italian reporters assaulted Marc Marquez' home on Friday.

Former 125 World Champion and Marc Marquez' mentor Emilio Alzamora addressed the media on Saturday in Barcelona to explain the events of Friday, which saw a couple of Italian reporters confronting the Repsol Honda rider and his family at his domicile in Cervera.

"As you all know, some very unfortunate events took place yesterday in Marc's home as a group of people showed up, shouting abuse and trying to get into his domicile and even assaulting some of his relatives," explained Alzamora. "This goes beyond the limits of sports, such circumstances should never have occurred. Logically, we'll take legal steps with our lawyers following this situation."

"The important thing is that Marc is OK, he's trying to prepare as usual for the next race, training and carrying on with his routine. In the light of those events, we want to ask respect for Marc and his family."

"This situation is far from normal and we have to make sure Marc can prepare for the last Grand Prix and work as usual, going back to a normal life, Marc and his family deserve to be respected," concluded Alzamora.
