Celta reinstate Santi Mina in training after burofax from footballer convicted of sex abuse

Footballer sentenced to four years in prison for sexual abuse, Santi Mina, will return to the field to take part in training for Celta de Vigo. The Vigo club confirmed the decision with a press release in which it explains that a burofax from the footballer claiming this right forced him to resume calls.

In its press release, the club assures: “Through a burofax [Mina] RC Celta is required to join the team’s training sessions immediately, so in this case the club is obliged to assume the player’s presence from that moment in the preparation sessions within the established deadlines with his teammates.

When the sentence condemning the striker was known, Celta decided to remove him from the spotlight and open a disciplinary file, the consequences of which are unknown. During these months, the Club tried to find a team from outside Spain to take over the services of the footballer, but Mina did not accept the offer that was put on the table. At that time, Celta wanted to get rid of the problem and make as much money as possible when fixing the problem. Now they intend to avoid legal problems with a footballer who threatened to take legal action if they prevented him from continuing to train in a first division team. ElDiario.es contacted the spokespersons of the Vigo club without receiving an answer.

“Look, girl, I like you”

The sentence pronounced at the beginning of May by the provincial court of Almería condemns Mina to four years in prison. At the time of the events, the footballer had traveled to the town of Almeria de Mojácar with his partner David Goldar. That night, Goldar met a girl whom he invited to the trailer the two footballers had parked near a nightclub. While Goldar and the girl were having sex in the vehicle, Mina decided to enter completely naked and demand sex from the young woman without her consent. “Listen, girl, I love you very much and I think we should do something,” he told her. She replied that the one she left with was her friend and not him. Mina got out of the car but returned after a minute. It was then that he forced the woman into penetrations in the mouth and vagina.

The footballer’s defense announced after learning of the decision that they would appeal the conviction.
