Monday talks to end La Liga strike

The Spanish Football League (LFP) resumed talks with the Spanish Professional Footballers' Union (AFE) on Monday in a bid to prevent a second round of strike action this weekend. The AFE want a guaranteed fund to protect players' wages in the event of their clubs being declared insolvent.

According to the AFE, clubs in Spain owe around 50million euros in unpaid salaries to more than 200 players from the end of last season.

Talks between the two parties last week failed to find a resolution, leading to the scheduled opening round of Primera Division and Segunda Division fixtures being postponed at the weekend.
