Tebas: “Florentino is behind Bartomeu's Super League”

The LaLiga president accuses Real Madrid of “being behind” Bartomeu's surprising announcement about Barça's affiliation to the European Super League on the same day that he announced his resignation as president of the Barça club. “Bartomeu is directed by Florentino in this matter, this is what I believe”, said Tebas in statements to 'The Associated Press' (AP).

Javier Tebas has long suspected Florentino's interest in creating a competition parallel to the Champions League with the best teams in Europe. “The so-called Super League is an old dream of the president of Real Madrid, who has been working on the project for a long time. It is not new news. But it is a big mistake because nobody understands the serious financial consequences it can have, “added Tebas..

It is not the first time that Tebas has declared against the project of the European Super League. The LaLiga president described the idea as a “Bar counter project. A project of this type will suppose many economic damages to the organizers themselves and to those entities that finance it, if they exist, because they never officially come out. The authors of this idea show a serious ignorance of football and the audiovisual rights market “.

“Unfortunate Bartomeu, announcing on the last day the participation in a phantom competition”, which would be the ruin for Barcelona, and confirms their ignorance in the soccer industry. Sad end of a president who had successes and lately errors “, a strong message on his social networks from the president of LaLiga against the resigned Bartomeu.
