Granada go for broke in La Liga

Cash-strapped promoted club face battle to stay in Primera Division as La Liga players strike overshadows season.


    The Spanish players union and the league are due to meet again on Friday for last minute talks, to try and avert a two-week strike.

    The two sides have so far failed to agree on an emergency fund to cover player wages when a club goes into financial administration.

    The season is due to begin on Saturday, but six top-flight teams are already broke - including newly promoted Granada.

    As Matt Rumsey found out, they're facing a tough task to make an impression on their return to La Liga.
