La Liga president Javier Tebas has once again voiced his concerns about the potential damage that will be caused by the formation of the Super League project.

His statement comes only a few days after PP and PSOE jointly withdrew from an amendment to protect the interests of La Liga from external factors such as the European Super League.

“Some do not know the economic damage they will do to national soccer, to ‘benefit’ two. Why do they only listen and believe the usual? That’s how it goes.” Tebas wrote on his official Twitter account, quoting an article from Defensa Central about PSOE and PP withdrawing their amendment.

The Super League project, which is largely promoted by the Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, Barcelona and Serie A giants Juventus, does not come under the protection of FIFA, the UEFA or the RFEF.

It must be noted that while Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus are the only teams still promoting the idea, the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United United, Manchester City, Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool, Inter, Milan and Atletico Madrid were once the part of the project.

The teams, however, withdrew from the proposed tournament as it wasn’t accepted by the global audience in the first place and UEFA threatened sanctions against those involved in the breakaway league.

As for the amendment that was initiated by PP and PSOE, the earlier terms ‘intended to allow both Spanish federations and leagues the possibility of refusing a license to a club’ if it plays in the unsanctioned competition.

Withdrawing the amendment means it could cause considerable damage to Spanish football, making it understandable for everyone to be surprised by the decision. 

As a result of the aforementioned, La Liga and the Royal Spanish Football Federation will not have the power to sanction the teams involved in the Super League.

Interestingly enough, the decision to withdraw the amendments was taken a handful of days before Real Madrid president Perez speaks at the Assembly of Commissaries, scheduled for Sunday from 10:00 AM, where the Super League project is most certain to come up.

Real Madrid players will be pumped up as they take on Manchester City on Wednesday, in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Madrid face a daunting task of beating Man City at the Etihad, after drawing 3-3 in the first leg. It must be noted that Los Blancos do not have a good record against Man City, losing twice in their last three meetings.

Vinicius Jr. pumped to defeat Man City

Despite the might of the opposition, confidence and optimism remain high in the Real Madrid camp, with Vinicius Jr., in particular, determined to defeat Man City, reports MARCA.

The Brazilian considers Man City as their main rival, especially given the way Real Madrid have performed against the English champions in recent years.

In the last three meetings between these two sides, Man City have won twice in 2020 and 2023, while Real Madrid secured a majestic victory in 2022.

Man City certainly have the home advantage heading into this fixture, but their might could be tested against a Real Madrid side keen on proving a point.

Vinicius takes Barça win as a reference

Vinicius Jr.’s hopes of defeating Man City and reaching the semifinal stage have been reinforced by the belief that the club can turn things around, just as they did against Barcelona last season.

Back in April 2023, Real Madrid and Barcelona locked horns in the semifinal of the Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid succumbed to a 0-1 defeat in the first leg and required a turnaround in the second leg at Camp Nou.

Sure enough, Real Madrid players stepped up to the plate and secured a majestic 4-0 victory to secure a place in the Copa Del Rey final. Vinicius and Karim Benzema, in particular, were the star performers for Los Blancos.

Although one would expect Man City to offer a much tougher fight, Vinicius remains confident of the club’s ability to stage a turnaround, as the two teams lock horns on Wednesday.
