Málaga owner Abdullah bin Nasser Al-Thani was back in the news again for his activity on social media. This time he replied to coach Míchel, who complained about the lack of new signings during his post-match press conference after Málaga crashed to a 1-0 defeat to newcomers Girona last night.
"I don't know anything about any new signings. We have a week before the market closes and I am focusing on coaching the team", Míchel told reporters. Those comments didn't go down too well with Al-Thani, who expressed his unhappiness in a tweet which he later deleted: "Mister González. I think you have made a few mistakes. You should be talking about the game, nothing else, that is why we have a Director of Sport". After deleting his tweet, he posted a new one which said said: "No comment".
