Juan Mata and David De Gea resign from Spanish Footballers’ Association
Manchester United duo Juan Mata and David de Gea have resigned from their roles on the board of Spanish Footballers’ Association.
According to reports, the two players weren’t happy with the management of the organization.
The association’s president David Aganzo is facing corruption allegations after a story broken by Spanish outlet The MARCA on Monday night.
There has been no official confirmation of Mata and De Gea’s exits and the quiet way in which it was done means that some board members haven’t actually realized.
The silent nature of their departures speaks for itself and, given that it happened a month ago, it’s not related to the recent allegations against the president.
Mata and De Gea’s resignations leave 11 remaining board members, meaning the voting majority is now six.
