The following is a FIFPRO statement about strike action called in Spain.

FIFPRO strongly supports the decision, taken by 93 percent of footballers in Spain. After 18 rounds of talks over 13 months with Iberdrola League clubs, the players represented by their union AFE have failed to reach a satisfactory agreement in which their employment rights are recognized.
