Javier Tebas used funds from La Liga clubs to launch an attack against Real Madrid – report

Spanish media publication El Espanol has come up with a hard-hitting piece, which sheds light on Javier Tebas’ alleged use of La Liga funds to commission a report from members of the Transparency International, a well-known anti-corruption NGO.

The firm had released a report on Real Madrid’s opposition to La Liga’s broadcasting rights deal with CVC, offering to take La Liga’s side and criticising Real Madrid, instead of offering impartial analysis.

Collaborating with lawyers from A25, which are also collaborators of Transparency International, El Espanol claims Tebas used the money received from La Liga clubs to launch scathing attacks on Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants were one of the clubs to oppose the CVC deal, labelling it as illegal and one that damaged the fabric of Spanish football.

Real Madrid’s decision had not gone down well with La Liga, who wanted to close the deal. And the league’s president, Tebas, in particular, was quite vocal about Los Blancos, criticising the club at every turn.

Now, with El Espanol putting out a report on the alleged siphoning of funds to launch a well-motivated campaign to not only criticise Real Madrid but also to defame the club, it appears as if Tebas has become a problem for Spanish football.

The La Liga supremo Tebas had previously threatened to withhold a portion of Real Madrid’s television rights revenue due to their refusal to accept the CVC agreement, which further intensified the tensions between the club and LaLiga.

Real Madrid’s support for the European Super League did not go well with the Spaniard either, who continues to publicly defame the club, in an attempt to justify his positions. It will be interesting to see how he responds to this revealing report from El Espanol.

Real Madrid goalscorer played with a dislocated shoulder against Las Palmas

Journalist Arancha Rodriguez has claimed that Real Madrid forward Brahim Diaz played the Las Palmas game with a dislocation in his right shoulder, which actually happened last Sunday during the derby match against Atletico Madrid.

The news was later confirmed by the forward’s father, Sufiel Abdekalder, who told The Athletic, “Yes [he had dislocated shoulder], but we didn’t want it to be public. Our 100% focus was on the match.”

The former AC Milan loanee started his first game of the season and it was his goal that marked the beginning of Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Las Palmas. 

The 24-year-old was later replaced in the 57th minute but by then, the Los Blancos had already established a two-goal lead.

“I’m so proud, you can’t describe the feeling, it’s something unique. I can only thank the fans because I’ve had an incredible welcome. I’m very happy to be here and play for this badge,” the forward said after the game.

Special outing for Diaz

The Las Palmas game was the first time that Diaz started a game for Real Madrid.

The versatile attacking midfielder found himself among the five alterations made by Carlo Ancelotti following the disheartening derby performance against Atletico Madrid last Sunday, a game where Diaz was only introduced in the 70th minute.

The 24-year-old seized the opportunity with both hands, scoring the opening goal in what was a comfortable outing for the team. 

Given the competition at hand, Diaz has been forced to settle for substitute appearances this season but fans have witnessed his unwavering dedication during this time.

The love he received from the Madrid supporters was shown when he was substituted during the second half.

While it is unlikely that his run in the first-team will continue, especially since Vinicius Jr. has now returned, the 24-year-old must continue to keep his head on the ground and work towards achieving the common goal this season.
