    We cannot understand the current regulation that a club, having a long-term injury, can perform this operation unilaterally and transfer their problem to our club.

    That's a very, very valid point. At the very least it's an oversight to allow clubs to make these emergency signings by triggering buyout clauses.

    Fair play to Braithwaite though. What a journey for him, and what an opportunity. I imagine he got himself a nice contract out of the deal as well. If anyone is interested in hearing more about and from him, this episode of The Spanish Football Podcast from back in October has a good interview with him about life in Legan├ęs and La Liga in general.
