Footballers in Spain represented by their respective captains are preparing a strike action over a plan by La Liga to stage a top-flight league match in the United States.
La Liga had agreed a 15-year deal with US Media Company, Relevent on Friday to the disappointment of the players’ union (the AFE) who have argued that they weren’t consulted before the decision was made.
The Union had a meeting on Wednesday which had in attendance Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos and Nacho, Barcelona duo Busquets and Sergi Roberto, Leo Baptistao from Espanyol, Bruno from Villarreal, and Atletico Madrid players Koke and Juanfran.
The President, David Aganzo however, said that the players would meet again in September if the decision was not rescinded.
The La Liga body released a statement after, stating that there will be a meeting with the AFE in the appropriate forum to discuss the plans to play a match outside of Spain.
