The Mirror reports that Bolton Wanderers are planning to launch a formal complaint with UEFA about Atletico Madrid after their travel arrangements including hotel rooms were leaked by the Spanish giants ahead of the two clubs’ UEFA Cup, last 32, second leg tie at the Vicente Calderon.
Bolton complain that the Atletico’s official website deliberately leaked the details of the visit of the Premiership strugglers to the Spanish capital after details of their flight timings and hotel name were revealed on the site to the public. So much so that the players’ hotel room numbers also appeared on other internet sites, implying official exposure of strictly confidential data.
Bolton manager Gary Megson spits out his venom at the behaviour of Atletico by saying:
This is strange behaviour for a club of Atletico Madrid’s size and status. It raises some serious security issues.
Actually, this is a method employed by Atletico to wind up their opponents. Bolton beat the Spaniards 1-0 in the first leg last week at the Reebok Stadium and the spit-spat between the two clubs stretched forward from then. But the unprofessional behaviour of the Atletico officials is truly detestable and UEFA needs to investigate the matter and met out strict punishment to Atletico Madrid.
