Pina to make Granada offer

Granada President Quique Pina will make an offer to owner Gino Pozzo to take control of the club and prevent its sale to Chinese group Desport.

AS reports Pozzo has confirmed the club could change hands in the very near future, Pozzo complaining results haven’t been good enough and the club should be ‘like Sevilla by now,’ but Pina has the right of first refusal on Pozzo’s controlling shares.

Pina and Pozzo are expected to meet shortly and Pina is understood to have the support of an investor to provide the finance to take control of the Andalusians.

Pozzo has always said Pina would get first refusal should he look to sell the club, AS adds, and with Granada having avoided relegation, all activity at the club is suspended until a decision is made over its ownership.

AS notes elsewhere that Pozzo’s disappointment with Granada means he will focus on Watford and Udinese, the clubs also owned by the Italian and his family, having taken control of Granada in 2009, when they were in the Segunda B.
