Vallecano’s President, Raul Martin Presa, has revealed that he was attacked and hospitalised after being headbutted by Espanyol forward and former Real Madrid player, Raul de Tomas’ agent.

NEWSTODAYNG reported that the incident happened during transfer negotiations, as a plaster was sported on his nose.

Partidazo Cope Presa said, “It was a completely unexpected headbutt. It was the action of criminal, a very cowardly action and a very s***** action. Because if he gives me warning, then we fight.”

Rayo have since issued a statement following their 2-1 victory over Valencia, confirming that Presa has made a formal complaint against Garcia.

The statement reads, “It is radically false that Raul Martin Presa assaulted Ivan Garcia.”

“Ivan Garcia assaulted Raul Martin Presa by headbutting him in the face, late at night on Thursday.”

“Precisely for being assaulted, Raul Martin Presa called the police, went to Accident and Emergency at a medical centre in order to receive medical assistance, and, immediately, made a formal complaint against Ivan Garcia to the police department.”

“The diffusion of the fake news yesterday that we here have denied is a weak defence strategy from Ivan Garcia in the face of the legal issue he is facing.”

The bizarre transfer saga appears to be coming to an end, with Rayo Vallecano looking set to finalise a deal for De Tomas after months of negotiations – at least the transfer side of things.
