Spanish side’s on-pitch protest

Players at Spanish Third Division outfit Granada are not too pleased at the lack of wages they have received recently. The squad has not been paid for four months and before their weekend clash with Melilla, decided enough was enough.

The players wore t-shirt’s with the slogan: “Paco Sanz [club president] – we want to be paid.” When the match kicked off, all 11 starting players sank to their knees in formation. After 30 seconds they began playing. I presume the implication was supposed to be ‘next time it could be 90 minutes’.
