The Galician club also requested the cancellation of the last date because it was not contested simultaneously to the complete one and the expansion of the number of teams in Second.
Deportivo La Coruña issued a hard and forceful statement regarding the decision of The league not to carry out the game that should face the Galician team with Fuenlabrada, for the last day of Second division of Spanish football. A meeting that had to be suspended as a result of positive coronavirus cases reported by the Madrid entity.
In that letter, Deportivo shows its outrage and requests the cancellation of the last day in its entirety, the suspension of the season in terms of promotions and descents, and the expansion of the number of teams in the Second Division.
In this sense, Deportivo assures that “it will exhaust all defense avenues and will go to all levels that protect professional sports activity”. The Galician club alleges that the Fuenlabrada did not act in good faith, traveling 20 players with covid-19 for the game on the last day against those of La Coruña.
However, Manuel Rivero González, the LaLiga Social Discipline Judge who is handling the case, considers it absurd to believe that Fuenlabrada could be in a position to play that game in a short time, and on the other hand, according to EFE reports, he maintained that the claim of the Dépor does not make sense because “the result is absolutely inconsequential given that Deportivo has already dropped to Second B.”
In La Coruña (48 points in the tournament) they maintain that if the game had been played at the same time as those of Lugo and Albacete (who beat Mirandés and Cádiz respectively and reached 52 points) the situation could have changed, since they could have lobbied with a live win over Fuenlabrada.
