If we achieve it then, sure that we also will be able to achieve it this summer", said trusted the vice-president culé.

For Romeu, "the responsibility of the current situation is of the club, but look for to range the crowbars with what LaLiga considers valid to give us fair play. The problem is that the judge (Thebes) is the same person that argues the interpretation". In accordance with the director, the club presionará to the end to attain inscribe to the players that attain fichar because they are convinced to have the reason. For now, the directive follows working in strengthening the 'crowbars' that allow fichar without committing madnesses.

This wants to say that we have to arrive to agreements with players so that they go out and can arrive other that they interest more to the club. It will be difficult, but it is necessary to work and achieve it", detailed Romeu. In this sense, the vice-president ensures that the club only will employ drastic measures (like the rescission of agreements) what the another splits was not receptiva.

With this would have a competitive team and could opt to win all the titles", explained Romeu. For the vice-president culé, the club will have to have income by the order of the 800 'kilos' to generate profits and excedentes that allow to go out of the indebtedness.

"Associate us in BLM to an expert company in merchandising, for example, that knows to sell our products much better that we has to to be positive. With all this, am safe that these 800 million those that speak can happen to 2.000 in the future", puntualizó Romeu.

Besides, the vice-president explained that, regarding the discount salarial, the same will go headed to the players that win more. Likewise, there will be a technical criterion with players descartados by the trainer.
