Eibar, U.D. Las Palmas, C.D. Lugo and S.D. Huesca) and after taking stock of everything that has happened at the Divisional Meetings, as well as the information published in the media, this Executive Committee would like to state that:
- LaLiga has explained to all the members of the Executive Committee the different actions it has carried out and is carrying out including: a letter to the Public Prosecutor's Office as announced yesterday by the president; communications with the data and information that LaLiga considers relevant to different Spanish and European bodies; and more actions that LaLiga believes should not be made public at this time in order not to prejudice the investigation.
- Yesterday, during the Divisional Meeting, the majority of LaLiga Clubs expressed their deep concern about this case, which they consider to be of the utmost seriousness, so the proposal for a joint statement received the unanimous support of all LaLiga SmartBank clubs and all LaLiga Santander clubs except for two, who objected to this joint statement for different reasons.
- LaLiga and the clubs Executive Committee reject and condemn the facts, and are deeply concerned and actively working to clarify any irregularities that may have occurred around the Negreira case, whether of a sporting or any other nature.
- LaLiga is following this matter very closely and will act firmly within the powers and limits allowed by law.
- The Executive Committee strongly supports LaLiga's actions in view of the work demonstrated and carried out over the years to preserve the integrity of the competition.
