Depor cancel Julio Rey over tweet

Deportivo La Coruna backed out of the signing of Julio Rey over a three-year-old message posted by the player on Twitter.

Mundo Deportivo report Depor wanted Rey for their B team and went so far as to confirm his arrival over the weekend, only to pull out of the transfer after an abusive tweet aimed at the club became known.

“Deportivo understand that a player should wear the blue and white as an example of sportsmanship, respect, commitment and positivity towards Depor, its colours, its shield and the values of the institution,” La Voz de Galicia quote a club statement as saying.
