When Malaga eventually do return to training, it won't be to the city's athletics stadium - their second home for the past decade.

It is set to be announced that the club will no longer make use of the Ciudad de Málaga stadium on the western edge of the city as part of a cost-cutting measure put in place by judicial administrator José María Muñoz.

Muñoz, who must reduce costs to balance the club's books, has taken the decision as it will free up 500,000 euros annually. Though Malaga CF is not the only entity to make use of the facilities, it is responsible for the upkeep of the playing surface, 24-hour security and catering staff.

Instead, the squad will train on the annex next to La Rosaleda stadium or on the main pitch if necessary.
