Racing Santander players In On-pitch Protest

Racing Santander refused to play their Copa Del Rey quarter-final second-leg tie against Real Sociedad on Thursday night in protest at not being paid since September. They stood still on the pitch at their home ground, Campos de Sport de El Sardinero, after kick-off while Sociedad passed the ball about. Referee Gil Manzano asked the Santander players if they were going to participate and they said no, so he ended the contest.
