Mijatovic to testify on assembly irregularities

MADRID - Former Real Madrid sporting director Predrag Mijatovic has been called to testify in an investigation into irregularities at the club's assembly last year which led to the resignation of president Ramon Calderon.

Mijatovic, who stepped down in May shortly before Florentino Perez returned to the presidency, will appear on October 14, the Madrid court leading the investigation said in a statement.

Calderon, who replaced Perez in 2006, was accused of manipulating voting at the assembly, which was later declared null and void. He has denied any wrongdoing.
