Javier Tebas fires shots at Real Madrid president Florentino Perez: “They cry a lot”
Real Madrid have been at odds with La Liga president Javier Tebas for a while now, especially after coming up with the European Super League project that did not go well not just with Tebas but with the majority of the football fans in Europe.
But despite the bad start, Real Madrid have continued to propagate the idea of ESL, with the help of their eternal rivals Barcelona and Italian giants Juventus.
This has led to the continued bad blood between Los Blancos and Tebas, who has been quite outspoken about his opposition to Real Madrid and the ESL project.
In a recent media interaction, Tebas fired another shot at Real Madrid, stating (h/t El Partidazo de COPE), “I know Florentino well. He thinks that in Spain there are places where Real Madrid shouldn’t play. He thinks this league is weak & generates nothing.”
The La Liga president added that Real Madrid ‘cry a lot’ despite the fact that big Spanish teams earn just as much as the Premier League clubs.
“Big clubs in Spain earn as much as the ones in Premier League. Real Madrid just cry a lot about it,” he said.
Needless to say, this is not the first time Tebas has openly spoken out about Real Madrid, with the La Liga president earlier admitting that he is not a ‘Florentinista’. It won’t be the last time either, as the Spaniard continues his war against the top two teams in Spain and the ESL project.
Fortunately for him, there has been a slight friction between Barça and Real Madrid lately whereas Juventus are struggling with the Italian courts. This may serve as a crucial setback to the ESL project, which was proposed to start in a few years’ time.

Real Madrid winger has two future destinations on table for next season
Real Madrid set out on a mission to change the minds of Dani Ceballos, Marco Asensio and Nacho Fernandez earlier this week. After all, all three players were contemplating a departure from the club for a gross lack of minutes.
Los Blancos’ latest approach seems to have impacted Ceballos’ position in a positive fashion. However, Fabrizio Romano reveals that it has not changed Marco Asensio’s mind.
According to the Italian journalist, the Spaniard will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season as a free agent.
Of the numerous options on his table, he sees Aston Villa and PSG to be the best bets. In fact, Villa have already submitted their opening bid for the player as revealed by Fabrizio Romano once again.
After a dramatic final day of action in the Premier League, Aston Villa finished in the European spots and will participate in the UEFA Conference League next season. While a move to the English club would be a steep step down, it will see Asensio receive regular playing time.
Paris-Saint Germain, on that front, appears the more probable destination. The French club are close to losing both Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr ahead of the new season, and Asensio would thus fit in as a starting quality winger. Moreover, they offer Champions League football.
The Spaniard’s role at Real Madrid this season has not been minor by any means considering his contributions. In 30 La Liga appearances, the 27-year-old has scored nine goals and provided six assists in addition to creating nine big chances and averaging 1.4 key passes per game.
However, that does not satisfy the winger who wishes to be a starter week in and week out. His departure in June appears to be now written in stone, and the club should feel hard done to not make a penny of his move.
Many in Los Blancos’ administration see Brahim Diaz as a direct replacement for the Spanish international if he leaves. Needless to say, the AC Milan star’s future will closely depend on Asensio’s situation.
