Athletic asks CAS for an urgent precautionary measure with Iñigo Martínez

Athletic has requested an urgent precautionary measure from the Administrative Court of Sports so that it can play tonight Iñigo
Martinez in the second leg of the Cup semifinals against Levante.

The objective is to suspend the execution of the resolution of the Appeal Committee, which has rejected the appeal presented by Athletic against the sanction of four matches imposed yesterday by Competition to the player for the slap on Sergio Leon at the end of last Friday’s game against the granota team.

“The reason for requesting said measure is that the execution of the agreement, appealed in administrative proceedings before the TAD -the last instance to resolve the sports disciplinary sanctions- causes damages of impossible repair to the player and Athletic Club, because in case of not participating in said 4 parties and later the present appeal being fully or partially upheld, it would be impossible to repair the damage caused to this party because the situation is not reversible, ”says the statement issued by Ibaigane.

In addition, the club has expressed its “absolute disagreement” with the resolutions of the two committees belonging to the Federation, “taking into account antecedents on similar or even more serious actions.”
