La Liga leaders Girona forced to train on rented golf course despite being part owned by Man City's owners
| Last updated
Girona are the best team in Spain at the moment despite not even having their own training facility.
They've amassed 34 points, winning 11, drawing one and tasting defeat just once against Real back in September.
The squad at the disposal of Michel includes former Manchester United and Ajax man Daley Blind, as well as ex City pair Aleix and Eric Garcia - the latter who is on loan from Barca.
Girona finished 10th in La Liga last term and now have a genuine chance of playing in the Champions League next season.
But bizarrely, at the moment the club do not even have a permanent training pitch.
According to ara, Girona are currently renting a pitch at a golf course
The first-team use the PGA complex in Caldes de Malavella, having signed an agreement back in November 2017 that stipulates they can use two pitches on the premises for four years.
The youth, women and B teams have facilities elsewhere but the club's plans to have their own sports city in the small village Vilablareix have hit a brick wall.
Construction was supposed to begin in September, with hope of a move happening at the start of 2024.
However, they are yet to be given the green light following opposition from local residents, who painted, hung banners and collected signatures to demonstrate their stance.
The Territorial Planning Commission will meet to discuss the situation in November, with Girona hopeful of a positive outcome.
