The 43-year-old head coach Victor Sanchez was suspended by Malaga after an explicit video of him was posted on social media. He will be under suspension until a full investigation is completed.
In a Twitter post, Sanchez claimed that he was a victim of blackmail prior to the posting of the video. He wrote: “I want to report that I am being the subject of a crime against my privacy with harassment and extortion. The matter is in the hands of the police and I’m obliged to follow their instructions.”
He added: “I want to inform you that sharing or spreading intimate content of any person without consent is also a crime, either through social media or messages or in any other way, according to article 197 of the Criminal Code with penalties for those who share personal content without consent of the affected person. Thank you for your understanding and support.”

Malaga has also issued a statement saying: “In relation to the events that have recently been discovered, and which have not as yet been verified, Malaga CF immediately suspends coach Víctor Sanchez del Amo from his duties until a full investigation is carried out.”
“We will disclose further information once the facts have been clarified,” it added.

Be strong and say I make a mistake,” which presumably refers to Sanchez.
