La Liga side Villarreal will send their best players when they take on Kitchee in an exhibition match in May. A formal agreement was signed yesterday that, according to Kitchee boss Ken Ng Kin, includes financial penalties for non-appearance of top players such as Giuseppe Rossi, Joan Capdevila, Carlos Marchena, Santi Cazorla, Nilmar and Diego Lopez. Details such as ticket prices, sponsors, and itinerary will be announced early next month. The match, at Hong Kong Stadium on either May 26 or 27, is to celebrate Kitchee's 80th anniversary.
