David Cortes and Noe Pamarot are officially no longer Granada players, after the club released them from their contracts today.
The pair were informed over the summer that they were not part of the Andalucians’ plans for this current season.
However, both players, who joined the club a year ago on two-year contracts, reportedly turned down moves to other clubs and refused to mutually agree to terminate their contracts.
Granada have now handed the pair letters of dismissal today, officially releasing them from their contracts, with a set compensation fee.
The players can now take the matter to court, if they believe, as has been the case in similar instances, that their compensation received is not enough.
Cortes has immediately spoken to reporters to present his side of events and to express his disappointment.
“It is a shame. This is not the situation that one wishes for when leaving a club,” the 33-year-old defender reflected.
“I hope to still enjoy my football. I’m a little sad, but I get a nice souvenir in terms of League survival achieved last year at Vallecas.
“I had signed here for two seasons. And questions over any other issues are beside the point. Even so, I won’t leave with a bad taste in my mouth. I’m a Primera Division player and I believe that I could have won a place here.”
