  • José María Muñoz says that the books show no evidence of any payment to have the company name printed below the shirt number during the 2013-14 season

Malaga’s judicial administrator José María Muñoz has this week cast doubt on the payment of 2.65 million euros from hotel group BlueBay to put the company's name on the squad’s shirts during their time in control of the club.

Muñoz says that there is no evidence that BlueBay ever paid to have their name below the shirt number during the 2013-14 season (a year of transition after being in the Champions League) and has asked the courts how to proceed in this case.

At the time it was described as a two-year arrangement but the BlueBay logo was replaced after a year by that of Benahavís town hall.
