La Liga president Tebas: “Madrid would do better with another president”
La Liga president Javier Tebas spoke out again against Real Madrid president Florentino Perez in an interview with El Partidazo by COPE.
“Madrid would do better with a president other than Florentino, in most aspects other than economic, as in all the management of the Superliga. I have no doubt that Florentino would ipso facto remove me from the La Liga presidency if he could. In institutional politics, Madrid make mistakes, they win many opponents.
“I don’t appear in his audios because I was not important at the time. I don’t know if I will make peace with Florentino, because we have two very different ways of approaching professional football.
It seems Tebas is still very sensitive about the Super League proposal which sparked widespread controversy in the football world in the spring. The plans have clearly created a big wedge between the league and club presidents.
Tebas also spoke in more detail about the potential future of the Super League where he claims the idea is dead. He claims the idea is already being forgotten within the Premier League and Bundesliga after the clubs involved disband.
“A Super League is not negotiable. Nor that the big clubs must dominate national and international football. It is not the future. I’m not giving the Super League a chance to succeed.
Tebas added that he was not concerned about a planned Super League re-emergence, but was concerned about any future concept ideas Perez might come up with and exclusively involving elite football clubs.
“I’m not worried about the Superliga but I’m worried about the concept of Florentino, who thinks the big teams should run everything. And the World Cup every two years.
