Spain: No photos with Obiang

Spain’s players are reportedly resolute to not be photographed with Equatorial Guinea President Teodoro Obiang during their visit to the country.

La Roja have been criticised for lining up a friendly in Malabo this international break, accused of ‘legitimising a brutal and bloody dictatorship’ under Obiang.

AS report that Spanish Football Federation have communicated to their Equatoguinean counterparts that the Spanish squad will not be attending a reception with Obiang and that they will not be available for any photo opportunities that may be used politically.

The squad, who in previous international trips have met with leaders from Argentina, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica and Ecuador, will reportedly only leave their hotel in the African country to train and to play.
