LaLiga see finance complaints drop

By iSportconnect | July 18, 2016

The number of complaints brought by players for non-payment by the end of the 2015/16 season dropped below the one-million-euro mark for the first time.

The efforts made by LaLiga clubs to balance their accounts and reduce their debt has brought a historic reduction in money they owed to players at the end of a season.

As a result, ampoule the 165 complaints received by the end of the 2014/15 campaign fell to just six.

Of the 89,080,311 euros owed in the 2010/11 season, only 189,959 euros remain outstanding.

Javier Tebas set out his objective to reduce monies owed when he took over the reigns as LaLiga President in 2013.

There were 195 complaints brought against clubs in 2013/14 (a total of 22,839,033 euros), a figure which dropped to 165 complaints (a total of 16,851,629 euros) in 2014/15. Last season drew to a close with only six complaints (189,959 euros).
