  • Judicial administrator José María Muñoz will remain in sole charge and has already submitted his first report on the state of the club

Former club chief executive Richard Shaheen will not be returning to Malaga, as requested by the Al-Thani family and the public prosecutor's office, after the judge investigating the case, María de los Ángeles Ruiz González, dismissed the notion on Tuesday morning.

The Al-Thanis wanted Shaheen reinstated so that he could ensure that the administrator was acting in both theirs and the club's best interests. This was, as expected, opposed by the APA.

As it stands, José María Muñoz will remain in sole charge and has already submitted his first report on the state of the club to the judge.
