The Spanish league programme could be hit this month as the players’ union ponder going on strike over unpaid wages.
The Association of Spanish Footballers (AFE) have refused to rule out the possibility of going on strike from 16th April to 19th April.
The AFE have been in talks for some time over the issue of unpaid wages, particularly to players in the lower divisions.
AFE chief executive Luis Manuel Rubiales Behar, a former Levante player, issued a statement in which his organisation vowed to “continue with the (negotiations) with the Government of Spain through Superio Sports Council (CSD), the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and the LNFP to sign a Grand Alliance for Spanish football.”
The statement continued: “We require a solution to the serious problems confronting all levels of our game, and that hurt the players who are active in them.
“The claims are conducted with the support of all the players and have the sole purpose of ensuring compliance with contracts that as of today are unfulfilled, for last season and this and in future years.”
