After meeting with the other 39 clubs in the League, the president once again criticized the creation of the Super League: “If it was good for soccer, they would not have done it clandestinely.”

The 39 LaLiga clubs that were not invited to the Super League had a meeting this afternoon with the president of the championship, Javier Tebas, and flatly rejected the creation of the new European competition. “The clubs unanimously and strongly rejected these plans. We all believe in sporting merit as the only criterion to qualify.”

In a subsequent meeting with national and international media, Javier Tebas analyzed the situation of the Super League, its creation and the chaos experienced on Monday afternoon. “They have been threatening for 20 years, with the G14, with the birth of the ECA … That threat has always been there and it has happened, and in 48 hours it has vanished, it has dissolved like a sugar”. In addition, the president of the League assured that the entire process of creating the competition has been done “secretly”. “If it were good for football, as the president of Madrid says, he would not have had to do it clandestinely, secretly.”

Tebas directly criticized Florentino Prez, whose arguments he responded on the fly, starting with the alleged losses that these clubs are having: “It is a problem of cost control, more than income”, and reported that the twelve teams that made up the Super League they had voted “two days before in favor of the reform of the Champions”. In addition, he assured that the English and German clubs will “never” be in such a project. “It is not the way. We must talk and reform. The Super League as conceived is dead. Be realistic.”

LaLiga has been one of the most critical institutions with the Superliga, and Tebas acknowledged that they will not sit down to negotiate with them until they change their mind. “Madrid and Barcelona are what they are for the League and the Champions League. You have to have respect. If dialogue is to give what they ask, no. Dialogue is that they return to the institutions. They did not like the agreement and they have gone to burst the system “and returned to focus on Florentino Prez. “He says they make the Super League to help football. Either they lie or they are wrong. Florentino lies, the Super League destroys football. Spanish football is not going to be ruined in 2024, he has taken the measures to get out of a difficult situation, he has created norms of economic control, it has increased audiovisual rights. Spanish football has not asked the Government for any help, there are no defaults, there is no catastrophe, which is what Florentino announced, it is not true. “
