Spanish Football League Relegates Real Murcia To Third Division, Promotes Mirandés
Published August 8, 2014
MIRANDÉS CELEBRATES: Mirandés President Alfredo de Miguel said, "It is a pleasure for the club, the entire Mirandés family and the city. It's important to be in the second division, as demonstrated this year. ... Now we can give this city what it deserves" (EP, 8/7).
MURCIA REACTS: In Madrid, Álvaro Olmedo reported more than 300 Real Murcia fans had gathered outside LFP headquarters when an LFP statement "ended the small hopes of the most optimistic fans." Before "reaching LFP headquarters, the Murcia fans found out on Radio Marca that the LFP committee making the decision would meet at 9:30am." The LFP was "looking to avoid its committee members having to pass in front of Murcia fans." In addition to Manuel Aira, players including Miguel Albiol and Daniel Toribio "accompanied their fans to Madrid, where they tried without success to enter LFP headquarters" to meet with Tebas (MARCA, 8/7).
