In reaction to the last interview with Gianni Infantino, the president of FIFA, who was on the brakes for possible sanctions against the clubs at the initiative of the Super League project, Javier Tebas violently attacked the leader on social networks. Swiss. The president of La Liga accuses Infantino of having internally supported this new competition and points to his “ignorance” of the world of football.
President of La Liga, Javier Tebas did not hesitate to show his strong opposition to the “gurus” of the initiators of the project of a European Super League, tackling “their selfishness and their lack of solidarity”. Positions assumed during the launch of this new competition which quickly collapsed, but also many months before.
“Infantino shows great ignorance of football and its industry”
Javier Tebas had already attacked Gianni Infantino, president of FIFA, in his opinion in favor of this Super League project last February. A position repeated this Wednesday on social networks. FIFA President Gianni Infantino, known as W01 for the ‘inventors of the Super League, demonstrates great ignorance of football and its industry, tackle Tebas. Please, more respect for domestic leagues and less absurd ideas from the famous bar. “
Last February, Javier Tebas had already indicated that Gianni Infantino was known by the code name “W01” in the documentation of the Super League project, which the FIFA president would encourage. This time, the La Liga president was reacting to Infantino’s comments in L’Equipe on Wednesday. “A leader must also ask himself the question of how we got there,” Infantino said in an implication about UEFA, and not necessarily the most favorable to sanctions either even if he repeated not to support this Super League project.
Gianni Infantino had also declared himself in favor of “dialogue”, and this “even in the most delicate situations”. As a reminder, Real Madrid, on the initiative of its president Florentino Perez, was at the initiative of this project just like FC Barcelona. The two Spanish clubs have not yet officially withdrawn from the Super League project, unlike Atlético de Madrid, which should certainly experience less severe penalties in the event of sanctions imposed by UEFA against the 12 clubs. dissidents.
