LaLiga president Javier Tebas has once again spoke out against Real Madrid president Florentino Perez in an interview with El Partidazo de COPE.

“Madrid would do better with another president other than Florentino, in most other aspects than economic, as in all the management of the Superliga. I have no doubt that Florentino would remove me as president of LaLiga ipso facto if he could. In institutional politics, Madrid is making mistakes, it is winning many opponents.”

“I don’t appear in his audios because I wasn’t important then. I don’t know if I will make peace with Florentino, because we have two very different ways of understanding professional football.”

It seems Tebas is still very much sore over the subject of the Super League proposal that caused widespread controversy throughout the football world over the spring. The plans clearly created a big rift between the league and club presidents.

Tebas also spoke further about the potential future of the Super League where he claims the idea is dead. He claims the idea is already forgotten within the Premier League and Bundesliga after the involved clubs disbanded from the plans.

“A Super League is not negotiable. Nor that the big clubs have to dominate national and international football. It’s not the future. I don’t give the Super League any chance of success.”

Tebas added that he is not concerned with a reemergence of the planned Super League, but he is concerned with future conceptual ideas that Perez may put forward that exclusively involves football’s elite clubs.

“I’m not worried about the Superliga but I am worried about the concept that Florentino has, who believes that big teams should direct everything. And the World Cup every two years.”
