Malaga's Money Problems Return

TAGS:  men's national team, spain


Money problems continue to plague Malaga of Spain’s La Liga, as player and staff wages have once again gone unpaid. Following Wednesday night’s 4-3 Copa del Rey victory over Cacereno, coach Manuel Pellegrini said he would meet with players on Thursday to discuss their options.

A few weeks ago, after Malaga’s Champions League victory over AC Milan, owner Abdullah Al-Thani suggested he would continue investing in the club. However, local reports claim that players are angry that back-wages totaling close to $12 million had not been paid by the end of October as had been agreed.

"We still do not know what we are going to do," midfielder Duda told reporters Wednesday. "The most important thing is to talk internally, then we will see what might happen. We will decide tomorrow (Thursday)."

Thursday has now come and gone and there is still no word about payment and what the manager and players’ have decided. Meanwhile, U.S. international Oguchi Onyewu scored for the club on his full debut in the Copa del Rey victory over Cacereno.
