It’s no secret that Florentino Pérez is the European leader who pushes the most internally for the creation of the SuperLeague.
Officially, FC Barcelona and Juventus Turin are still alongside the president of Real Madrid. But in an interview with the Cadena COPE, the boss of the Spanish Liga Javier Tebas calmed the ardor of that of Real Madrid. And for good reason, according to Javier Tebas, Florentino Pérez is actually quite alone in his SuperLeague project. For the enemy n ° 1 of Paris Saint-Germain, fierce opponent to the creation of this closed European league, Juventus Turin and FC Barcelona are not fully in the project, contrary to what the leaders of these clubs may say in public. A tackle in the throat of Florentino Pérez, as relations between the two have often been strained in the past, although Javier Tebas has always acknowledged Real Madrid’s financial efforts in recent years to keep a wage bill in check. This is not the case with FC Barcelona, for example.
“Florentino Pérez does not want La Liga to grow because that would mean the end of his Super League project” 🗣Javier Tébas

“Florentino Pérez is the only one to be convinced of the SuperLeague. Neither Laporta nor Agnelli (respectively presidents of Barça and Juventus Turin) are. I’m not giving the Super League a chance to succeed. Peace with Florentino? I do not know. Regarding our vision of professional football, it is impossible for us to understand each other because we have two very different visions. I have no doubt that if Florentino could he would kick me out of the La Liga presidency. In institutional politics, Madrid makes a mistake, and collects a lot of opponents. Florentino says of me that I am corrupt, he says it everywhere. But not in public ” launched Javier Tebas, who will probably never change his mind about a SuperLeague he never wants to see hatch.
