LaLiga Hit out at RFEF president Rubiales
LaLiga president Javier Tebas has taken a swipe at Luis Rubiales in response to claims that a European Super League would reduce the number of clubs in LaLiga Santander.
Recent reports have suggested that Europe’s major leagues would have to cut down on their fixtures to allow their bigger clubs to participate in a proposed Super League.
Off the back of these reports, comments coming out of the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) – of which Rubiales is president – have criticised Tebas on the matter.
“The unofficial ‘spokespeople’ of Rubiales and the Super League (who are the same), are badly informed,” Tebas said in a tweet.
“UEFA are not advocating a reduction in the number of teams in the leagues. The leagues have been spending some time working on reforms that keep their status applicable.
“Rubiales is looking for ATTENTION.”
MARCA sources indicate that UEFA are unhappy with recent comments coming from Rubiales, who they see as out of touch with the proposed reformatting of the Champions League.
In the latest meeting between LaLiga and RFEF bosses on January 28, the RFEF’s secretary general, Andreu Camps, said that the Federation had heard nothing about the Champions League reform.
After he was informed of the development, Rubiales made comments about the reduction of clubs in Europe’s leagues to make room for a Super League which didn’t please anyone in Spain or in Europe.
