La Liga strugglers Leganes say “enormous damage” has been caused by the Spanish Football Federation’s rejection of their request to replace striker Martin Braithwaite.
Braithwaite, 28, joined Barcelona on 20 February to cover while Ousmane Dembele is out injured for six months.
La Liga allows clubs to replace a player who is out for over five months, but Leganes cannot replace Braithwaite.
“These are unfair regulations,” a Leganes statement said.
“It goes against the integrity of the competition and the right of all clubs to compete in equal conditions and has caused enormous and serious damage to the club.”
Barcelona signed the Danish striker for 18m euros (£15m) in a contract that will run until the end of June 2024.
