  • Judicial administrator José María Muñoz will now have a longer timeframe to be able to carry out his cost-saving plans

Malaga CF received a major boost at the end of last week when LaLiga confirmed that it would be relaxing some of its rules governing clubs' finances in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The standout measure, sources understand, is that clubs will still be able to register a team even if their wage bill at the start of the season is more than 30 per cent higher than that permitted by the salary cap.

Judicial administrator José María Muñoz, who announced that the club had to make up a shortfall of 15 million euros in order to stay in the league next season, will now have a longer timeframe to be able to carry out his cost-saving plans, with the club's viability at its current level seemingly secured until economic conditions return to something close to normality.
