Club comes first, says Malaga defender
The players have just returned from their tour of Venezuela and find the club in crisis over future ownership.
The current owner, Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser Al-Thani, is said to be on the verge of selling the club while the players and technical staff are still waiting for their salaries.
The club will participate in the UEFA Champions League for the first time in their history after finishing in fourth place in La Liga last season, but it is unclear if the will have to sell some of their best players like Santi Cazorla to raise funds.
Nevertheless, Weligton says the players have remained calm and continue to prepare for the season that lies ahead, including the Champions League.
"We're more concerned about the club's future, if the current owners will stay in place or if others take over, than about getting paid,” said the Brazilian defender.
“We need to sit down and talk because there is some uncertainty. We know the same as everybody else.
“I think we're going to get paid, but just now we're waiting for news and we need to think about the Champions League.
Malaga will be engaged in meetings before leaving on Friday to continue with their pre-season program in Italy and Greece.
