While discussing the option of a new contract, I've had plenty of time to reflect on things and feel that the time is now right for me to step aside. I stepped up in difficult circumstances last season because the club needed some stability."

 

Friendly Abandoned

Charlton Athletic's friendly with Romanian top tier side Gaz Metan Medias was abandoned after 49 minutes following what the Addicks called "extremely distasteful scenes".

Two players from the Romanian side then man-handled the referee, according to reports, and were dismissed immediately. Medias head coach Edward Iordanescu tried to substitute the players, rather than them being dismissed, but the referee would not agree so the Romanians withdrew their players, forcing the game to be abandoned.

Atleti Hit Out At Barca

Atletico Madrid have accused Antoine Griezmann and Barcelona of disrespect and claim that the two parties held talks in March. Atleti say they have rejected an offer from Barca and ordered the striker to report for pre-season training. An Atletico statement read: "Following today's quotes from FC Barcelona president Josep María Bartomeu on our player Antoine Griezmann, Atlético de Madrid wishes to publicly declare that:
On May 14, Antoine Griezmann informed Miguel Ángel Gil, Diego Pablo Simeone and Andrea Berta of his decision to leave our club at the end of the season. In the days that followed that meeting, Atlético de Madrid learned that FC Barcelona and the player had reached an agreement in March, specifically in the days following the return match of our Champions League tie against Juventus, and that they had been negotiating the terms of the agreement since mid-February. Regarding president Bartomeu's statement today we wish to state that it is true that yesterday there was a meeting between Miguel Ángel Gil and FC Barcelona CEO Oscar Grau, at Barcelona's request and that at that meeting, Mr Grau expressed his intention, once the release clause of Antoine Griezmann's contract had decreased from 200 to 120 million euros, to ask for a deferred payment of the aforementioned amount of the clause in force as from July 1. Atlético de Madrid's response was obviously negative, as we believe that FC Barcelona and the player have disrespected Atlético de Madrid and all its fans. As a consequence, today, Atletico de Madrid has instructed the player, his sister and agent and his lawyer, that Antoine Griezmann, in compliance with his contractual obligations with our club, must appear next Sunday in the club's facilities in order to start the pre-season with the rest of his teammates. Through this statement, Atletico de Madrid wishes to express its strongest disapproval of the behaviour of both, especially FC Barcelona, for prompting the player to break his contractual relationship with Atletico de Madrid at a time of the season when the club was involved in the Champions League tie against Juventus, as well as the league title race against FC Barcelona, something that we believe violates the protected periods of negotiation with players and alters the basic rules of integrity in any sporting competition, as well as causing enormous damage to our club and its millions of fans."
