Valladolid consider legal action against Atlético Madrid
04 April 2013 @ 03:23

By Monica Villar, News Editor,

Valladolid are thinking whether to take legal action after it came to light that Atlético de Madrid’s Sporting director, José Luis Pérez Caminero, had a secret meeting with Valladolid winger Patrick Ebert.

In light of this discovery, Valladolid CF have posted the following press release on their official web page:

“It has come to Real Valladolid C.F’s attention through the media that Atlético de Madrid’s Sporting Director has had at least two meetings with one of our player’s agents. On the 21st of February in the Vicente Calderón stadium and with the player himself in Torrecaballeros (Segovia), on the 27th of March.

These meetings have taken place without the knowledge of Valladolid C.F., despite we informed Atlético’s Sporting Director in December that our club was not going to sell our player in the January transfer window and if they were interested in said player, they should hold talks with Valladolid C.F directly during the summer transfer window.

Since these meetings are prohibited by sports legislation, since you cannot negotiate for a player from another club before the final six months of his contract, Real Valladolid C.F has put this situation in the hands of their lawyers, in case there is any damage to the club’s economic and sporting interests.

Real Valladolid has waited until today to make this public because of the important match we had in la Liga last Sunday and to give Atlético de Madrid time to apologise for their Sporting Director’s behaviour”.
