The open war between Luis Rubiales Y Javier Thebes It is still hotter than ever in the midst of a football stoppage caused by the severe coronavirus pandemic, the consequences of which for Spanish football remain unpredictable both at a sporting and economic level.
The President of The league yesterday stepped out to rule out a financing offer proposed by the Federation of 500 million euros so that the First and Second clubs can face the economic impact caused by the coronavirus. The reason for the refusal of Thebes is that the proposal contravenes the regulations that regulate the sale of audiovisual rights.
“Thank you for your offer to LaLiga of a € 500 million loan with the guarantee of television rights, but it has happened again as with insurance policies in a pandemic. It is impossible. Read the first additional provision of RD 5/2015 of centralized TV sales ”, wrote the president of LaLiga on his Twitter account.
Thebes reproduced the aforementioned paragraph of the Royal Decree stating that LaLiga “may use all the rights whose commercialization it has legally assigned as a guarantee to access financing, with the sole purpose of providing the participating clubs and entities that make it up with resources to pay off their debts with Public Administrations ”.
Now, the eternal dispute between the Federation and clubs has also been joined by the AFE, which yesterday positioned itself alongside the clubs to deny a supposed agreement for the players to increase between 15% and 20% their salary in the event that competition resumes.
Aganzo and Tebas step out
