This was confirmed by José Luis González, sports director of Alcoyano shortly after the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) informed them that they were not going to play the match against Villaviciosa's Loyalty scheduled for 10 pm. "We were told that we urgently had to leave the facilities after confirming Marino's positives " explained the Alcoyano sports director to add that "the only thing we asked the Federation for a quick decision, whatever, so as not to delay this situation more than necessary ”.
José Luis González also recalled that "we have to pay salaries in August and we need to know as soon as possible whether the players should continue training or not." As ABC reported, CD Alcoyano players, technicians and employees reached an agreement with their club to lower their salary and be able to dispute the promotion phase to Second Division B.
This Sunday, the Alicante club has reiterated its request to the RFEF to make as quickly as possible a determination on the phase of promotion to Second B. "The 2019-20 season exceeds 12 months and the clubs Third division do not have the financial resources to face more monthly payrolls or extra expenses. To this, we must add the delicate emotional and physical situation of the players and coaching staff due to the pantemia, "says Alcoyano in a statement made public on their social networks.
