Javier Tebas attacks PSG once again
The president of Spain's La Liga, Javier Tebas, came back firing at PSG for no apparent reason for the nth time while in charge of the Spanish competition earlier this week.
In an interview with Off the Pitch, a media outlet focused on football business and data analysis, Tebas commented on multiple topics regarding the current state of world soccer.
Among those topics was, of course, PSG and their Qatar-backed ownership. In the past, Tebas had already said that he is "not the biggest fan" of the "new rich" clubs in football, name-dropping Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.
Speaking to Off the Pitch this week, Tebas once again tried to explain his hatred of PSG and what he blames the Parisian organization for.
Javier Tebas: "Nasser Al-Khelaifi wears all these different hats... it's unfair"
"It doesn't bother me that the state of Qatar owns PSG," started Tebas. "What worries me is that they continue to run the club at large economic losses."
Considering Tebas runs a league that is light years away from what the league he thinks he's running (the Premier League, just in case), it's rather dumb to make such comments, let alone when La Liga features one of the most debt-impacted clubs all across the globe in FC Barcelona.
"To inject money that has nothing to do with football in PSG," according to Tebas, "causes massive inflation in terms of wages and player salaries, which creates a domino effect and leads to losses for other clubs." Alright, mate.
Tebas has fiercely put himself in a contrarian position to that of PSG's board, steadily denouncing the situation in Paris as one that creates unfair competition backed by the unlimited investments and economic power of Qatar.
Not happy enough with spitting all of that nonsense, Tebas had to share a couple of thoughts about PSG's president Nasser Al-Khelaifi on top of everything.
"The fact that Nasser Al-Khelaifi wears all these different hats is a concern and it is not fair," said Tebas. "Being at the head of ECA and PSG at the same time..." questioned the president of La Liga, before adding that "whatever he does, it's not fair.“
Tebas is currently fighting the creation of the European Superleague, in which two clubs playing La Liga football have partnered to create a new competition outside of the classic and decades-historied leagues around Europe.
In the event those two organizations (Real Madrid and Barcelona) end up leaving La Liga, Tebas might find themselves asking NAK to hand him a job as a plumber at the Camp des Loges.
So Tebas might be better off looking a bit ahead and trying to make friends instead of growing his list of enemies.
