Joan Laporta attacks Tebas for taking a personal vendetta on Barcelona
Barcelona paid around €1.4m between 2016 and 2018 to a company owned by Jose Maria Enriquez Negreira, who was then the vice-president of a refereeing committee of the Spanish football federation.
Confirming an investigation is going on,Barcelona
promised an explanation later as well as attacking La Liga president Javier Tebas for invalid allegations amid a La Liga investigation into the matter. He said: “
Through the Compliance team we have decided to outsource the investigation of the facts. An analysis is being carried out so that it is independent and rigorous as Barca, its partners and its followers deserve. We believe that for a democratic society to exist there must be a free journalism, but we regret the leaks of data and documents that are taking place in a case that is being investigated by the Prosecutor’s Office and should have maximum custody.
“These works were done with the corresponding invoice and have the corresponding documentary and video support of some services that had been provided. Shortly, in the shortest possible time, we will hold a press conference to explain all the information we have in the club about this whole issue.”
Barca's president further launched an attack on
for taking a personal vendetta against the Catalan giants. He added:
“Mr. Tebas has once again shown his face. They already told us that he was fomenting a campaign against Barca and myself. The mask has already been removed again. In his career he has already shown his anti-Barcelona tendencies, in 2005 he no longer wanted Messi to play for Barca. He is obsessed with Barca. He does not forgive us for the fact that we did not sign the agreement with CVC and that we are in the Super League. He wants me to stop being president of Barca. It is not a coincidence that we are doing well now.
Tebas said on Monday that the Barca president should resign if he cannot explain the case.
