Footballers in Spain moved closer to organising a mass strike after they failed to reach an agreement with La Liga chiefs in their dispute over unpaid wages.

Talks between the Professional Football League (LFP) and the Spanish Footballers´ Association (AFE) have gone on for months over the controversial ´wage fund´ issue, with players wanting money set aside to pay them if their club hits financial difficulties.

The case has been high on the agenda due to the crisis concerning Levante, whose players twice threatened strike action last season as they went months without receiving wages.
