Getafe coach Michel: Adrian was dumped because he is my son

Getafe coach Michel admits his son, Adrian, was offloaded by the club against his wishes.

Michel has no doubts Adrian would still be a Getafe player if he wasn't his son.

He told Soccer is Life magazine: "Was what happened to him fair? No, when I stop to think about it. He wants to be a footballer, but he has to do so somewhere else, not at Getafe.

"(President) Angel Torres and I have not even talked about it. It was a decision of the president not to continue with his existing contract.

"I cannot support this, only respect his decision."
