Getafe want the Elche game to be postponed

Mon 11 January 2021 | 7:24

Getafe managing director Angel Torres has requested La Liga to call off their game against Elche due to heavy snowfall.

Snowfall across the country stopped


from traveling to Valencia for the game against


which was scheduled to be held tonight.

La Liga decided to allow Getafe to fly to Valencia within 24 hours without having to go on a treacherous road journey, and both clubs agreed to the postponement.

However, Torres has criticized La Liga’s insistence at playing the game so soon, particularly with further snow forecast in the next 48 hours.

“I am very angry with La Liga. What they are doing is unacceptable,”

he told an interview with Marca


“We have been locked up since Friday without being able to train and now we cannot travel by plane or train and the roads are closed.

“I demand as a member of La Liga that Javier Tebas seek a solution as soon as possible.

“Firstly there is the issue of the safety of the Getafe players and traveling party and then the rest. I am extremely angry.”

La Liga has not suggested that they would revoke their decision on the fixture with Getafe possibly facing a walkover if they are unable to move to the Manuel Martinez Valero Stadium.
