Spanish Second Division Side Real Zaragoza Dir General Announces Intentions To Buy Club

Spanish second division side Real Zaragoza Dir General Jesús García-Pitarch announced his "interest in buying a majority share of the club, which is currently in the hands of majority shareholder Agapito Iglesias," according to Pedro Luis Ferrer of AS. García-Pitarch "assured that Iglesias is aware of his interest, but has not yet given an answer." García-Pitarch said, "In recent weeks, I have dared to express my interest and that of other local businessmen in buying the shares. He has not yet responded, but we know that he is willing to sell. We want a project to move Real Zaragoza forward. What I am doing is building a bridge so that the social crisis affecting the club athletically and financially will end" (AS, 3/6).
