BrusselDe vechtscheiding between RC Genk and the Spanish playmaker Alejandro Pozuelo, who wants to leave to the Canadian Toronto FC, escalates from day to day. Monday let the club know that in January, when Al-Ahli, the Spaniard wanted to remove for the fixed lump sum of 8 million euro, a ‘legally valid agreement’ was concluded which stipulated that Pozuelo remained until the end of this season. In return, the lump sum until 14 June from the contract achieved. The agreement was by email is logged, but because there are still a few details had to be agreed, never signed. The agreement is legally valid according to the club, although Toronto FC also willing to the 8 million immediately to put down. Pozuelo’s manager David Garcia responded, however, immediately extremely sharp: ‘All lies. The clause was not deleted.’ Which Garcia immediately claimed to no longer want to talk with the Limburg club to, if necessary, through the law of ’78 for the court the contract unilaterally to disconnect it.

Did yesterday the 27-year-old Pozuelo there is still a scoop on top. With a carefully by lawyers, drawn up in English, ‘Media Statement’ of almost two pages, even for 15.30 hours spread. In his own words as a response to the statements from RC Genk: “To my reputation, honor and image to protect.’

It denies Pozuelo especially staalhard that he is in January with the club an agreement reached that he would remain until 14 June 2014. ‘I need you from the evidence, lay it on the table.’

It could be that the Spaniard should go to Prague to get him as far away from
his manager

That he’s a Genk organised press conference on 16 January, however, solemnly declared that he had the intention to remain, denies he: “That is true.” But: “I was by the club under pressure such statements. Already, we were still discussing the agreement on which Genk is.’

That was only point 1 in a document with 9 points. The rest is mainly the repetition of ‘never signed’, and the stress of his best intentions over the past three years with the club, ‘that is not fair attitude’. With an apology to the Genk fans, for whom I have the greatest respect. I am convinced that they would confirm that I always exceptionally got deployed, professional and committed.’

Point 8 may again count: “I have no other option than to have all the legal possibilities to use my rights.’

Only in may?

He decides, however, in paragraph 9 that he ” is until the last day that he is Genk, with its best forces available to the team. As I always have done and as the fans deserve.’

The latter has especially coach Philippe Clement ear. Shortly after the frontal attack on his club, Pozuelo included in the selection today to Prague, fly. It plays the authoritarian match organiser tomorrow night against Slavia the heenwedstrijd of the 1/16th finals in the Europa League.

Allegedly his selection was a purely sporting decision. Or the leader will play, is the question. A very strange situation that undoubtedly can do well to the preparation and the peace of mind of the player base. But it could be that the Spaniard needs to do to Prague because he at least until Friday, is absorbed by his team mates – yesterday at training turned out to be the atmosphere is still not acidic. And to have him so far away to keep his manager. Camp-Pozuelo in any case, everything said, nothing more to add, was at the bottom of his statement, and above his signature Mr. Alejandro Pozuelo Melero. The word was again to Genk, which have not wanted to respond to the attack. Toronto has the offer of Genk Pozuelo to take over on may 6 – just before the conclusion of their mercato and three days before the close of PO1 – still not cancelled.
