Liga MX Side Puebla President Says Club Has Started Making Owed Payments
Published March 17, 2014
PAYMENT DEMANDED: In Mexico City, Ricardo Magallán reported following Saturday's game against Mérida, Mexican second division side Celaya players "made an unusual proposal regarding two months of debt that players and coaches are owed in salary." Just "as the players posed for a photo to be taken, they all covered their faces with paper bags." Phrases "like 'pay me' were written on the bags in reference to the two months that have passed since players last received their salaries." The "gesture was aimed directly at the club execs' box," where club President Alejandro Márquez was sitting. The "complaints go beyond economics, as players have already complained about traveling to road contests on matchdays" (LA AFICION, 3/16).
