Athletic Bilbao president Josu Urrutia has defended the club after the European Commission announced it is investigating it and six other Spanish clubs over public funding. The Commission claims Athletic has received tax privileges other Spanish clubs do not benefit from, owing to its status as a club owned by its members rather than a limited company. Urrutia told reporters: "Historically this club has always acted in accordance with the law, and the same is true now." And he ruled out the club being converted into a limited company. "I haven't considered that, this club belongs to its members, and I don't think that model is being questioned," he said. "If it is, we will fight to make sure this club continues to belong to its members."
