Celta has spoken immediately and emphatically after learning of Santi Mina’s sentence of four years in prison. The club from Vigo has issued a statement in which it transfers the decision to remove the player: “In a precautionary way, it has been decided to remove the player, provisionally, from first team trainingwithout prejudice to continuing to carry out the activities indicated by the club for this purpose”.
Despite the fact that the olive entity “respects the right of the player’s defense”, which will present an appeal in the coming days, it reports that “He is obliged to take measures against those facts that notoriously undermine the image of the club and directly undermine their values”.
The group from Vigo has decided to open a disciplinary file against Santi Mina in order to “clarify his work responsibilities in view of this resolution“. It should be remembered that when the events occurred Mina was a Valencia player and at the time of his signing for Celta he was already denounced for a crime of sexual assault, from which he was exempted, although he is charged with a crime of sexual abuse From Celta they took advantage of the official statement to show “their most absolute rejection of the crime defined in the judicial resolution.”
