MARKET INFORMATION

Racing Santander players have confirmed that they will boycott their Copa del Rey game with Real Sociedad unless the board resigns. Captain Mario Fernandez announced the decision in a statement at the training ground, calling for President Angel Lavin to step down before Thursday’s game, or the squad will not take to the pitch. “If the board does not resign in the next few hours, the squad here announces its irrevocable refusal to compete in our next game in the quarter finals of the Copa del Rey,” he told the gathering media.

The clubs financial problems have meant that the players have not been paid for a number of months and now their participation in the Spanish cup has been thrown into doubt.
