So, when they make bail, will Adams play them? More to the point, should he play them? He needs them but it's a tough call. Look what's happened to Leeds since the Woodgate/Bower/Duberry fiasco.
It might not be exaggerating to suppose that this could be the beginning of the end of the road for Leicester. They only escaped administration by the skin of their teeth last year . If they get relegated (likely ATM) they could nosedive or collapse altogether.
The rights or wrongs of this case will be decided at a later date
But for the Spanish authorities holding the players was proving increasingly embarrassing, as 'questions' started to be asked by by the 'popular' press in this country as the tabloids did their usual trick of changing stance half-way.
Questions and articles of the conditions within Spanish prisons and the Spanish goverment ,who face an election within a few days had already started to appear
Spain's a country who relies heavily on the wealth of people in this country for much of it's income and to sustain countless jobs in the tourist trade.
The news was also big news in Spain and threatening to become a thorn and an embarressement at home and further afield ,people shouldn't under estimate the world-wide publicity that the Premiership attracts.
On a horrible day for Madrid,it's people and indeed much of Spain, the Spanish authorities had an opportunity to temporarily get rid of one of their 'diplomatic problems' whilst the world's eyes and press focused on far more series news....
It therefore came as no surprise to me that the Spanish authorities came to the decission they did yesterday.....
It was a day to bury bad news
My thoughts today are with the people of Madrid....who looked after me with warmth and kindness following being attacked in their city whilst following England years ago.....and not with over paid footballers
