LFP attacks Javier Tebas’ comments about Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain
The LFP slammed Tebas’ recent comments about the division, describing the La Liga chapter’s criticisms as outrageous.
A little about the topic
Javier Tebas spoke out after Real Madrid legend Ramos and Barcelona ace Messi left for PSG on free transfers this summer. His speculation is that state-run clubs like Paris Saint-Germain are enemies just like the Super League, and that Ligue 1 is home to veteran stars.
Response to Tebas’ statement
The LFP would like to respond strongly to the latest statement by Mr Javier Tebas about PSG in particular and the position of League 1 in general, explained in a statement released by the LFP on Wednesday.
The remarks made by the President of the Spanish Football League are not worthy of the institution he represents and which the Professional Football League has always respected. Therefore, the Professional Football League asks Tebas to review his outrageous statements.
The professional soccer league and La Liga clearly do not share the same approach as league relations should be. The professional soccer league does not want to be the muleta waved by Javier Tebas to hide the internal problems that Spanish professional soccer is currently facing.
However, it would like to remind you that the financial generosity that Spanish clubs have enjoyed over the seasons and which is at the root of the current problems is neither its responsibility nor the responsibility of PSG. ”
In this regard, the Professional Football League has no lessons to be learned in terms of the financial control of clubs. It is undeniable that the French professional league played a leading role in this area at the European level, creating the DNCG, which is still an effective regulatory model recognized by all.
In conclusion, the Professional Football League advises Mr. Tebas to return to more restraint. Each professional league must now work to develop its championship and for the common good of European professional football, which must act as one to rebound from the health crisis that has severely affected its economy.
The European leagues must unite to counter future threats to the international calendar. This is the meaning of the work of French football leaders through their respective actions within international football bodies.
