“Super League is dead” Tebas warns elite clubs against breakaway plans

Tue 05 October 2021 | 9:33

The La Liga president insists the plans for the European Super League are not negotiable.

Plans for establishing the European Super League were announced by twelve clubs, including three from La Liga, on April 18. Amid huge backlash from football officials and fans, nine clubs withdrew from the breakaway competition, leaving Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus as the only clubs remaining involved with the project.

UEFA attempted to punish the rebel clubs, but they abandoned their legal proceedings in September. Despite the legal victories of the clubs involved with the Super League project, La Liga president Javier Tebas claims the breakaway competition is already a matter of the past.

"A Super League is not negotiable,"

he told

El Partidazo

.

"Nor that the big clubs have to dominate national and international football. It is not the future. Any step that one gives there is yielding ownership.

"I do not give any chance of success to a Super League. In England they realised they were wrong. In Germany more of the same. The Super League is a dead issue."

Asked about his relationship with Real Madrid's president

Florentino Perez

, Tebas responded:

"I haven't been to live football for a long time,

"Why don't I go to the Bernabeu box? Florentino invites me to all the games at the Bernabeu.

"Peace with Florentino? I don't know. From a professional football perspective it is impossible for us to understand each other because we have two very different visions.

"The only one who is convinced of the Super League is Florentino. Neither [Barca president Joan] Laporta nor [Juve counterpart Andrea] Agnelli are.”

Tebas

claimed

last month that Barcelona officials are “psychologically kidnapped” by Perez, indirectly blaming the Real Madrid boss for Lionel Messi’s departure.

He added:

"I have no doubt that if Florentino could, he would remove me from the league's presidency. In institutional politics, Madrid is making mistakes, they are making many enemies."
