The LaLiga president said that the Premier League has become “a losing competition”

“It is financed by the owners in significant amounts of money, which is what is distorting the market for us,” he said.

The president of the Spanish LaLiga, Javier Tebas, accused the Premier League this Thursday of having become “a losing competition” that is not “sustainable”, for which it “distorts the market” in which other competitions such as the Spanish or German leagues participate.

The Premier is not an economically sustainable competition. It is financed by the owners in significant amounts of money, which is what is distorting the market“, expressed in an event organized in Brussels by LaLiga and the laboratory of ideas Sport and Citizenship.

This fact, said Tebas, is what he has been “concerned” for a few years, since “all the clubs lose money there, there is no sustainability”, compared to what happens in the Spanish League or the German Bundesliga, which are “the only two sustainable leagues” in Europe.

thebes He also pointed out that the teams promoting the Super League, such as Real Madrid, Barcelona or Juventus Turin, “know that the Premier League clubs are not going to enter the project” that they are finalizing and that is why “they sell that the Premier is the Super League and you have to do a project that competes” with it.

“If they have more commercial economic income, the rest of the leagues will have to fight to get closer commercially, there is no other formula (…) I will have to go to the market and fight so that my rights are worth more,” said the president of LaLiga.

Along the same lines, Tebas stressed that “it will be possible to compete with the Premier without any problem” and added that he is not concerned that “the fifteenth Premier team signs a Spanish player”. but to do it “at a loss” while in the Spanish competition “generalized losses are not allowed for a long time”.

Thus, he stressed that “this is what has happened this summer”, in which the difference between transfers and sales in the English domestic competition was 1,200 million, while in the Bundesliga it was 50 million positive and in the league Spanish of 50 million in negative.

“That is what cannot be”, settled Javier Tebas.
