Getafe Is Seething Mad

Azulón president Ángel Torres came out with all guns blazing as his team will be without their two goalkeepers in less than a month.   What made the club prsident more indignated was the fact that he did not receive a call from any Argentine footbal federation official to talk about the matter and arrangements as far as retribution for the absence of both players.

¨We expect the proper executives to have the appropriate insurance as we have been affected severely,¨said Torres in an interview with Argentine radio.   Getafe will also consider denouncing the Argentine Football Federation to FIFA in the event that they do not get in contact with the club.   The club has also been left out in the dark as far as formal doctor´s observations and formalized reports.

Starting goalkeeper Roberto Abbondanzieri will be out for approximately two weeks after suffering a lacerated knee in Argentina´s 1-1 draw against Paraguay on Sunday.   Ustari will miss the majority of the 2008-09 season due to an ACL tear that he suffered when playing for Argentina in the Olympics in Beijing.

Getafe were able to obtain Valladolid netminder Jacobo Sanz on a loan basis for the rest of the year as he will get a better chance to earn minutes in the Getafe net immediately and battle Roberto Abbondanzieri as soon as he returns from his injury.
