Colón match suspended after players refuse to take field

The crisis at Primera Division club Colón de Santa Fe deepened today when the team's players refused to participate in a match against Atletico Rafaela, due to a failure to pay the squad's wages.

In some cases, members of the professional staff have not received a salary for the last seven months, and the debt held by the Sabalero board to players is believed to run into the millions.

The decision to abandon the game was taken by the club's players after a deadline for payment, today at 3pm, passed without further action.

As a result of the non-appearance, Colón were ajudged to have lost the game 2-0 by walkover after last-minute negotiations with players failed to avoid the protest. The club could also be deducted three points by the Argentine Football Association, adding to the six lost earlier in the season due to the non-payment of a previous transfer fee.
