The Sports Area of the EU Figueres has begun working the last few weeks in the preparation of the squad for the next season, in conjunction with Manager Javi Salamero and with the approval of the coach, Xavi Agustí
One of the first objectives was to ensure the continuity of the four captains, Sergi Romero, Albert Canal, Ritxo Mercader and Èric Vilanova, and for this reason they have been offered a renewal upwards. Despite being a very high economic proposal, it has not met the high expectations of the players.
Given the possibility of jeopardizing the economic stability of the Union if the club accepted the claims of the mentioned players, the Sports Area was obliged to close the renewal talks without having been able to reach an agreement with them .
Although with some of these players the club had reached an economic pre-agreement, the four have made a common front to condition the economic demands of others, which has been absolutely unacceptable for an entity that has never stopped fulfilling with them.
In the words of the president of our club, Narcís Bardalet, "economic rigor is sacred, we can not put the club at risk."
The club appreciates their professionalism while defending the EU Figueres shirt and wishes them a lot of luck in the future.
