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 considering move for Manchester City superstar as club faces possible sanctions
Premier League has come up with a shocking statement, charging defending champions Manchester City with more than 100 breaches of the financial rule between 2009 to 2018.
The allegations levelled at Man City could lead to a point deduction for the defending champions or perhaps even expulsion. This could prove to be significant for not Premier League but European football in general.
To that end, a new report from Daily Mail suggests Real Madrid are keeping close tabs on the situation. They are aware of the fact that if Man City get sanctioned, it could rule them out of the chase for top target Jude Bellingham.
But more importantly, it may open up the opportunity to sign Erling Haaland in the near future. The Norwegian international was one of Man City’s smartest business move in the summer when they roped in the star striker for a meagre fee.
However, Spanish media believes Haaland has a release clause in his contract worth around €200 million. It could be activated in the summer of 2024 and clubs like Real Madrid are said to be interested in activating the clause.
But in light of the recent allegations made against Man City, Real Madrid are anticipating a potential mass exodus, and could make an early move for the forward, especially if the English giants get sanctioned by the Premier League board.
It goes without saying that Haaland, who has been scoring goals for fun since joining the Premier League outfit, is someone who demands to play at the highest level of football. It was one of the key reasons he joined Man City – a club that can offer consistency in terms of sporting success.
But a potential sanction for City could change the dynamic, possibly paving the way for a club like Real Madrid to establish themselves as an excellent suitor for Haaland.
