Javier Tebas has been very hard with Josep María Bartomeu, recently resigned as president of the FC Barcelona, after one of the last decisions he made at the helm of the culé club: join the European Super League.
“This league has been the dream of the president of Real Madrid … He has worked for it for a long time, it is nothing new. But it is a serious mistake, he does not understand the serious financial consequences it will generate,” says the president from LaLiga to the Associated Press, in a reflection that began with a hard stick to the ex-leader of Barcelona: “I think Bartomeu was directed by Florentino.”
Tebas is very opposed to the creation of this new tournament, among other reasons, because it would reduce much prominence to national competitions, in addition to the Champions League and other club competitions. In Spain it is Real Madrid who is pulling the bandwagon to join this new tournament, although now Barcelona’s entry has become official.
In Europe, many clubs have shown interest in the new tournament. For example, the greats of the Premier League have already signaled their intention to sign up, with Liverpool and Manchester United leading the way.
Unlucky @jmbartomeu, announcing the last day the participation in a competition “phantom, which would be the ruin for the @fcb, and confirms their ignorance in the soccer industry. Sad end of a president who had successes and lately errors.https://t.co/byyci9cl8h
