Xerez president quits after receiving threats

The president of La Liga basement club Xerez, Carlos de Osma, has stepped down after threats were made against him and his family.

"I have resigned for personal reasons," De Osma told a news conference on Thursday, "I have received threats, as have my wife and children.

"If people want to have a team in La Liga it depends on everyone, not just the players. Cutting down the criticisms would help."

Xerez lost 2-0 at home to champions Barcelona on Wednesday, and have managed only one win in their first top-flight campaign.
