‘Celta stole Minambres’

Rayo Vallecano aren’t ruling out legal action after sporting director Felipe Minambres quit to take a post with Celta Vigo. ‘They’ve stolen him from us…’

Club President Raul Martin Presa, pictured above, left, with Zhang Chendong and Minambres, told AS that neither he nor anyone else at Vallecas were contacted by Celta to speak with Minambres, who resigned for the role at Balaidos.

“Nobody has called me or anybody at Rayo, to negotiate for Felipe, who late [Wednesday] afternoon told us he didn’t have an agreement with anybody. We’re not comfortable with Celta’s attitude since we feel they have stolen an assent of the club without paying a penny for him,” the President said.
