Spurs steal from Sevilla - No cigar for Castro
I don't know about you but I find this hilarious. Their president will have to dig his heels in a little more to get under Daniel Levy's skin. Amateur hour.
Sevilla are fuming at Federico Fazio. President José Castro talked to the media after leaving the traditional floral offering to the Virgin of the Kings, among other things assuring that the Argentinian is still a Sevilla player.
"The player has a contract and the money may have been deposited with La Liga, but it is not in Sevilla's coffers. I don't understand what the player is doing in England. He will leave, but he will leave when his contract is terminated and it hasn't been yet", explained the executive, who added that the club is looking at taking disciplinary action against the Argentine.
Castro acknowledged that "these things happen in football", before adding, "Obviously we're angry." "I'm not going to go into details regarding certain things about Fazio. I don't want to. It won't lead to anything. They've paid €10 million for him, which is his buy-out clause. We'll see if they have to pay more for him according to the rules."
The Fazio bust-up is not over. It remains to be seen what steps are taken, what reactions are to come, and whether the player has anything to say. Fazio has already been unveiled by Spurs and wants to move on. "I've come to Tottenham because it is a great club and has fantastic fans", said the player in London. However, he will also have to come out and respond to this latest development.
In other affairs, Castro talked about upcoming additions. He said that "the squad will be complete with the arrival of the centre-back, Kolodziejczak".
