Court suspends Spanish strike

‘I will give everything for the shirt’ says Tripper at Atletico Madrid presentation

Spanish officials and members of the players’ union had been in discussions to avert the proposed industrial action, which would have affected the final two rounds of La Liga fixtures and the Copa Del Rey final.

But it appears the strike has now been averted and this weekend’s round of games will go ahead.

Barcelona face Atletic Bilbao in the Cup final and could win the league title on Sunday if they beat Atletico Madrid.

The strike was initially called by both the Spanish federation and the players union as they disagreed with the government???s proposed new law regarding the collective bargaining for TV rights, with major clubs Real Madrid and Barcelona receiving most of the money.??
