LaLiga president Javier Tebas speaks at a Europa Press Sports Breakfast

Javier Tebas has been very satisfied with the failure of the Super league, since he considers that she was condemned from her very birth. The president of The league has pointed out with some irony that he felt sorry when he saw Florentino Pérez announce the project.

“When Florentino said that he was coming to save football with the Super League, I didn’t laugh out loud, but it did make me very sad,” he explained in a Europa Press Information Breakfast. “Almost all the clubs have recognized that they have been wrong. The worst sanction is the reaction of their fans, they have recognized their mistake and that is what must be taken into account,” he said, on the possible consequences, which he does not rule out.

“I do not know deeply the statutes or what the clubs sign when they play the competitions UEFA. All clubs belong to ECA (European clubs). Seeing what they wanted to do, I respect that UEFA makes the decision it wants according to its statutes. And surely they do it with a legal basis “, considered the Aragonese leader.

Tebas sees a bigger contender in the fight between the Super League and UEFA. It is not Florentino Pérez, but himself Gianni Infantino. “Florentino Pérez never wins the pulses. This is not a personal issue, it is that we have a different idea of ​​the idea of ​​football. Is that behind all this was Gianni Infantino, the president of FIFA. I already told you in person, “he said.

“It is a pulse with the ecosystem of European football. Florentino Pérez has led this project, but it is not a pulse with him. What I am saying is that he is a man who will be difficult to hear him say that he was wrong,” he considered, although he does not see that he “made a fool of himself.” “The project has failed as they prepared it. Without English, they won’t be able to do it. Another thing is that the concept of supra competition so harmful is still there, “he warned.

However, he did point to “a contradiction” in Florentino by indicating that it was born by the crisis of the COVID when “they had been working on this for three years and there was no coronavirus,” he said.

“It bothered me and I was sorry that he said it was to save football, so why was it clandestine,” he added. “In less than 24 hours the big leagues and federations said it was damaging. They have been with this story for 20 years, in what hands can we be if this succeeds“, he asserted.
