La Liga Side Málaga's Appeal For Europa League Inclusion Denied By Court Of Arbitration
Published June 12, 2013
MÁLAGA OUTRAGED: REUTERS' Iain Rogers reported the club "expressed outrage and cast themselves as 'sacrificial lambs' after their appeal against a UEFA ban from continental competition" was rejected. Málaga Dir General Vicente Casado said that the club's finances "were in much better shape than some other Spanish clubs and he feared others may fall afoul of UEFA rules." Casado added that "the CAS decision will not affect the Málaga project and there will be some important announcements about the future later this week." Casado: "They wanted a scapegoat, a sacrificial lamb, and they found it, I can't see it any other way. We cannot lose our heads in the heat of the moment but it seems this decision was not based in law but was political" (REUTERS, 6/11).
